£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.”

Sweet Cornbread in a Brewery

Don’t miss a fantastic Line-up of Music on SATURDAY 17th September from 18.00 presented by MuzicMeet at Haresfoot Brewery BERKHAMSTED  in aid of a very good cause – Hector’s House Tickets  from this link http://www.wegottickets.com/event/363003   and can be purchased at the brewery shop Thursday to Saturday.

Compere will be Mike Naylor of BBC Three Counties radio. There will be a BBQ and a fine selection of craft ale straight from the brewery , wine and other refreshments

Headliners are sweetcornbread  This band are amazing –  fantastic energy ( I defy you to stay still) and  cross-genre playing a range of more traditional and electric instruments with stunning 3 part harmonies – definitely one of the best live bands I have seen and they went down very well at the brewery last time.

The latest act to join us “ANECHOIC” are an amazing mix of electronic and country, performing an electronic take on the songs of Leadbelly and featuring the hugely talented Alice Fredenham on vocals. Alice performed My Funny Valentine on Britains Got Talent and was an immediate sensation when she wowed the panel with her singing and shy charm and Simon Cowell described her as being like “Liquid Gold”. Her performance of My Funny Valentine on You Tube has 39 MILLION views!

April Blue are a highly accomplished Pop, Rock and R&B crossover act. Pete & Dunk are king of acoustic harmony and are extremely popular locally – Simon and Garfunkelesque.  DodoBones – quirky engaging acoustic music “wood rock” genre – lead singer Robbyn Snow is captivating
