PRESS RELEASE: CEPIC Congress: PantherMedia and Pixamba team up to deliver a new media management service for stock photography buyers
3 June 2010. Microstock agency PantherMedia is now offering its customers Pixamba's new digital image management software, which simplifies stock photo management, sharing, comparison, rights control and license tracking as well as image search and licensing.

Centralized digital media storage and management accessible from anywhere 24x7
Advanced fast search functionality
Cataloging of purchased images via categories, lightboxes or folders
Integrated search in customer's archive and in multiple stock agencies
Purchase and license images and illustration directly in the management software
Security, reliability and high availability backed up by a world-leading cloud computing platform
No initial investment and low pay-as-you-go service costs

Robert Walters, CEO of PantherMedia, comments on this new Pixamba media management service for designers, creatives and art directors: "We are always looking at ways to add value to our service. With Pixamba, we now help to maximize our customer's investment in their image archives. Our customers can now find their existing images and easily license additional imagery, which is delivered to their accounts automatically, hence saving valuable time and money."
David Mail, CEO of Pixamba added: "PantherMedia is our long-term valued partner and the first microstock agency to offer our innovative media management for the stock photography consumers. Since the launch of our new digital assets management platform, we have received an overwhelmingly positive market response from end users and are now partnering with stock photo agencies worldwide providing a complimentary highly demanded service to their customers."
