£1million secured investment for growth

 

Along with the £1million investment secured for growth, Pixelrights have appointed three industry leaders* on their Board in the form of Christina Vaughan, founder of Image Source and former Vice President of PACA and former President of CEPIC as new Chairman, James Rutherford CIO of Hermes SourceCap and Bill Flind CEO of Ipsotek as Non-executive directors.

They have now expanded their in-house team to 17, moved to Farringdon, and set up offices for their technology development in Poland.

They have also expanded across the web into new platforms, licensing their image technology to major players from image libraries to digital asset management companies such as Sodatech, Capture, MEMAT, Xpertise and Image Protect, who are now integrating the technology into their platforms and extending it to their clients.

Pixelrights are also working with associations and brands from the RPS to Metro and Fujifilm with joint promotions with all the major camera retailers from WEX and Calumet to John Lewis and London Camera Exchange.

Photographers can now sell prints as a self-fulfil option or select a print partner, they have more designs to choose from to build their sites and they have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders from articles on their new newsletter and blog, plus photographers can connect on social media with their members’ community.

Pixelrights websites will also be further enhanced this year as the service grows from strength to strength. It will be under-going some significant feature-based enhancements that will bring it to the top of its game.

“We are confident that Pixelrights in the coming months will become the most compelling option for anyone looking to build a website,” said Shaun Curry, founder of Pixelrights. “We want to show that our roots are in photography and that we understand this better than any other platform. Also providing the very latest technology to help photographers gain more from using the internet to promote their work. You only have to read our reviews on Google to understand what we mean to the photographic community.”

Pixelrights are pleased to announce they were invited to the DMLA conference in New York and the ACE Picture Library conference in London to present their new .PXLR image format, which uses their revolutionary SmartFrame technology. Recently featured by Alamy, their SmartFrame innovation is taking the image industry by storm offering substantially more protection than the standard jpg format online.

All images on the Pixelrights platform are protected by SmartFrame which reduces image theft and ensures attribution wherever they are shared.

Pixelrights have significant new features in development for the Smart Frame technology which will allow it to be shared on any website outside of our own platform framework,” continued Shaun. “To add to these exciting new developments we have decided to introduce our WordPress plugin, that will provide free use of the Smart Frame to around 70 million WordPress based websites. This is implemented or redacted at the flick of a switch, it is incredibly powerful and simple to use.”

EIZO and Magnum Photos Announce Global Collaboration with Establishment of Ambassador Program

Magnum Agency logo #magnumagency #photography

Hakusan, Japan, October 23, 2013 – EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) and Magnum Photos today announced a global collaboration to establish a program in which 14 ambassadors (see list below, including Elliot Erwitt and Martin Parr) from Magnum will integrate EIZO’s ColorEdge monitors into their color management workflow and provide EIZO with objective feedback on their experiences. Their insights will assist EIZO in its ongoing development of new graphics monitor and calibration software solutions.

EIZO and Magnum will also cooperate on creating individual profiles of the ambassadors with insights into their careers, bodies of work, and experiences with EIZO monitors. EIZO will begin posting these profiles on its web site (www.eizo.com) in November. In addition, each ambassador will share a selection of images from their work for EIZO to showcase its monitors at exhibitions and in showrooms worldwide.

Color and grayscale accuracy is paramount for Magnum and its photographer members. With numerous large-scale exhibitions in cultural institutions each year, ensuring the accurate translation of the image into fine-art prints is essential. The integration of EIZO’s ColorEdge series monitors into our workflow will serve both the restoration of historical Magnum imagery and the production of contemporary photographs by our members.” Alex Majoli, President, Magnum Photos International.

The ColorEdge series is EIZO’s professional line of color management monitors. Most ColorEdge monitors come with a built-in calibration or correction sensor and are supported by EIZO’s own ColorNavigator software to deliver predictable color results through hardware calibration and ease-of-use through completely automated screen adjustment.

Magnum Photos Ambassadors

Carl De Keyzer, Elliot Erwitt, Jim Goldberg, Paul Hayward, Alex Majoli, Enrico Mochi, Matt Murphy, Trent Parke, Martin Parr, Paulo Pellegrin, Gilles Peress, Jonathan Roquemore, Alec Soth, and Donovan Wylie.

News Post 29 – EIZO releases World’s first ever 240 Hz monitor for gaming

World's first ever 240Hz #monitor for #gaming from EIZO  www.eizo.co.uk

World’s first ever 240Hz #monitor for #gaming from EIZO http://www.eizo.co.uk

@EIZOUK EIZO Limited announce the 23.5-inch FORIS FG2421, the world’s first #gaming monitor with a 240 Hz refresh rate. The FORIS FG2421 also features a low input lag and gaming preset modes that were developed with professional gamers to make it ideal for first-person shooter, racing, fighting, and other fast-action genres.

The FORIS FG2421 comes with a new feature called Turbo 240 that surpasses the 120 Hz refresh rate of conventional gaming monitors. This high refresh rate along with a response time of less than 1 ms produces the smoothest image display available on a gaming monitor.

This high contrast ratio increases visibility in dark scenes making it easier to spot enemies. Plus EIZO developed its own integrated circuit to minimize the input lag or the time it takes for commands from a keyboard, mouse, or controller to appear on the screen.

Two color modes for FPS (first-person shooter) and one for RTS (real-time strategy) games are included. The FPS and RTS modes were co-developed with professional gamers from Fnatic, a leading eSports team, to provide ideal brightness, contrast, and gamma settings. Three fully-customisable modes for users who want to import and export their own settings are also built-in.

EIZO is bundling its new software, ScreenManager Pro for Gaming, with the FORIS FG2421. This software lets users download gaming presets used by professional gamers from www.gaming.eizo.com  or export their own customised colour modes to other gamers who also own the FORIS FG2421.

To allow for using the full 23.5-inch screen, the user can enlarge the image while maintaining the aspect ratio or expand it to fill the entire screen.

The FORIS FG2421 is designed to provide viewing comfort over long hours of gameplay. With the Turbo 240 set to off, the FORIS FG2421 maintains a refresh rate of 120 Hz and uses EIZO’s own hybrid technology for providing flicker-free images at any brightness level. A sensor on the front of the monitor detects the ambient brightness and adjusts the screen’s brightness to the ideal level which saves energy and prevents eyestrain. The sensor can enabled/disabled by the user.

PLUS The FORIS FG2421 debuts a new cabinet design. The back of the monitor features an illuminated EIZO logo on a glossy surface that is surrounded by a vermillion frame. Above this frame is a handle for carrying the monitor to a LAN party or gaming event. For viewing comfort, the stand provides 60 mm of height adjustment, 25° of tilt and 344° of swivel. A cable holder contributes to a clutter-free desktop.
