Delivers technology distribution power of major photo wire services

Digital Railroad, Inc. demonstrated its rights-managed Photo Feeds at the prestigious DEMO@15 conference, providing individual photographers and photo agencies with the technology and distribution power of a major photo wire service.

Photo Feeds extend the marketing power of online archives of member photographers and agencies worldwide. Personalized feeds are delivered to photo buyers, alleviating them of the need to search and monitor multiple archives. Photo buyers, consumers and bloggers subscribe to world-class photography via RSS, Atom or Javascript, personalized by subject, keyword and member archive.

"As a one-time photographer and current photo hobbyist, I know today's professionals are overwhelmed by the transition to digital technology," said Chris Shipley, Executive Producer of the DEMO Conferences. "Digital Railroad's Web-based services return control to the photographer while solving digital workflow and distribution problems. Digital Railroad’s services and technology will fundamentally change how photography is managed, marketed and sold worldwide. And best of all, their platform democratizes a market dominated by a few. "

Photographers can now automatically deliver timely, rights-managed images to individual buyers and blogs, exponentially promoting their new photos into the global marketplace. Subscribers receive thumbnails and metadata linked back to high-resolution images in member archives. World-renowned photographers and agencies are embracing the Digital Railroad platform, used by photojournalists, commercial photographers and even passionate amateurs.

"Photographers and agencies want managed technology solutions so they can focus on creating and selling great photos,” said Evan Nisselson, Digital Railroad CEO/Founder and a professional photographer. "We empower photographers and agencies with innovative, affordable ways to minimize production and maximize sales. “

Today’s unveiling of Photo Feeds continues Digital Railroad's momentum since its August 2004 launch with Pulitzer Prize and other award-winning photographers. Four months later, Version 2.0 launched to meet the needs of global photo agencies—Afghanistan's first photo agency, AINA Photo; UK-based Eyevine; Indonesia-based Jiwafoto; US-based Redux Pictures; and the VII Photo Agency.

The annual DEMO conferences focus on emerging technologies and new products, hand-selected from across the spectrum of the technology marketplace.

Digital Railroad,, is an application services company dedicated to solving critical technical problems facing the creators, sellers and buyers of digital imagery worldwide.
