Splash’s market-leading offering of candid celebrity photography and extensive collection of exclusive portraiture, red carpet and archival entertainment content will now be made available to buyers in the English speaking market via i-picturemaxx. The i-picturemaxx media network represents the only independent, neutral and professional search engine of its kind. In response to the inefficiency that researchers are confronted with when navigating thousands of disparate websites, users can now search over 500 M digital assets (photos, video, audio, text) in one simple to use interface called my-picturemaxx.
Several new agencies in the UK have also joined i-picturemaxx like Goff Photos, Big Pictures, Barcroft Media, Camera Press, ISO Images, Future Media, Eyevine, Caters, Cavendish, Guardian Syndication, Magnum, National Geographic Stock, Optic Photos, Pacific Coast News, Press Association, Planet Photos, Solarpix, SWNS, Xclusive. Current my-picturemaxx buyers can access the new Splash News material automatically. New buyers/researchers whom are interested in using the my-picturemaxx software can get in touch with picturemaxx directly.
“Since 2007, picturemaxx has provided Splash News with a valuable marketing/sales channel to the German speaking market,”said Tom Tinervin, Managing Director of picturemaxx international. “With broad adoption of the my-picturemaxx research application in the United Kingdom, I am pleased that Splash News will now make their highly sought after content available to UK buyers.”
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with picturemaxx to the UK market,” said Kevin Smith, President of Splash News and Pictures. “The tools of picturemaxx have provided an invaluable extension of our outbound sales opportunities for many years in the German speaking market and we look forward to the same success in the UK. Previously buyers were able to access Splash through IDS but as of January 2012 Splash will no longer participate in IDS.”
In the beginning of 2012 media content of Splash News will be made availabe via the i-picturemaxx network for UK buyers.
