License Management and History of Use


With the integrated license-management tools, you ensure that existing material won’t be used without clearance. For every media asset, you can set up licensing conditions - for instance, duration, type of license, and the permitted uses.

The usage history also keeps track of how often and how long a media file was used, or where it's currently in use, or the remaining lengths of active licenses.

Upstream Rights Declaration


BACKSTAGE completes your shopping platform. When doing searches, your users can see the licensing costs for each asset, what usages are covered, and which assets can be used free.

You decide what your shopping portal looks like and what should be considered in the search (keywords, applications, prices, products, etc.)

Individual Shopping Portal


Working with material from various agencies is very important, but why jump from Website to Website? Connect your purchasing platform with your favorite photo agencies and content partners and search their material via your own system. picturemaxx offers a wide variety of interfaces (API connections) to large numbers of media providers. Just give us your list of partners.

Any reusable licensed media assets can be clearly marked and your portal can include a "Free" search filter so users can easily search just for re-usable media files.

Inquiry Tool

Do certain people in your organization submit media requests, while others fulfill the requests? BACKSTAGE offers appropriate forms and response options to make this type of workflow smooth and effective.
