Barcelona (PRWEB UK) 12 June 2013
Imprezzeo, the leader in enterprise visual search, introduced its new Image Monitor™ service at the annual CEPIC Congress for European picture agencies today.
Image Monitor is an online service that allows picture agencies or other owners of copyrighted or high value image content to register their images and monitor specific websites for tracking usage. This is particularly valuable for ensuring that unlicensed usage is detected and converted as well as for monitoring licensed usage for correct attribution and billing. Corporate marketing and brand owners will find Image Monitor useful for monitoring compliance with brand and design guidelines. Image Monitor is a subscription service and does not require any special licensees or installation of hardware or software. Monthly services fees will start as low as €69 per month.
According to Peter Chin, CEO of Imprezzeo, “Over the past couple of years we have had many requests from agencies for an easy, low cost way to monitor the use of their images online. Image Monitor is an elegantly simple solution to what can be quite a difficult challenge. The service is inexpensive enough so that agencies of any size can take advantage of the latest technology for tracking the use of their valuable content. The economics of this are very simple and it’s easy to see how the service can pay for itself almost immediately.”
To use the Image Monitor service, users simply upload their image information to Imprezzeo and select a list of sites to be monitored. The images are registered on the secure Imprezzeo database. Users can choose from a variety of monitoring frequencies, reporting options, and data export formats. The Image Monitor service is currently in pre-release and is being evaluated by several leading picture agencies. Imprezzeo anticipates the service will be available for commercial use in September 2013. For further information, please email info(at)imprezzeo(dot)com
