LTU will be at the show to demonstrate its comprehensive image content control and search tools that enable photobanks to search, manage and protect their large databases of photographs or videos and their associated copyrights.
“The PACA Conference brings together the best and brightest in the stock photography industry from around the world. Organizations with large databases of royalty-free and rights-managed photos and stock archives, libraries of art and collections of entertainment images converge to share ideas, discuss trends and build relationships,” said Ray Owens, International Sales Director for LTU technologies. “We’re thrilled to be a part of the event and are looking forward to introducing LTU to many of the attendees who have not yet considered how they can better protect and leverage their visual assets. Whether they are providing content to advertising agencies, creative departments or college students working on an assignment, it’s imperative that these companies understand the benefits of a photo search and control solution and how it can ensure that their photos are easy to find, and are not being used without proper licensing.”
