SEATTLE, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Getty Images, Inc. (NYSE:
GYI) today announced a new $49 web-resolution product which is available
across virtually all of its editorial and creative collections. The new
product enables customers producing content for the rapidly expanding
online market to use award-winning imagery from the broadest and highest
quality collection in the world in their online media and advertising.
The rapid growth of online and mobile media uses is driving an ever-
expanding appetite for fresh content. This trend is expected to grow
exponentially as new media absorbs an increasing share of both customer
attention and marketing spend. According to the VSS Communications Industry
Forecast 2007-2011 (VSS Forecast, http://www.vss.com/forecast07),
"alternative advertising and marketing will continue to spur growth in the
communications industry in 2007 and through 2011" at an expected growth of
17.4 percent during that time period, with traditional advertising and
marketing seeing only a 3.2 percent growth rate.
"By providing the best collections of imagery in the world at the right
quality level, appropriate resolution and compelling price point, Getty
Images is raising the standard of using exceptional imagery in online
communications," said Jonathan Klein, CEO and co-founder of Getty Images.
"Customers who once considered alternative sources of imagery for use in
their online media and advertising campaigns, no longer need to sacrifice
the quality of imagery. We anticipate that customers will enthusiastically
embrace this product," Klein added.
Getty Images' new web-resolution product enables customers to access
the entire breadth and depth of its collections -- even the premium
collections -- for their online media and advertising campaigns.
Additionally, Getty Images offers customers an unparalleled level of rights
control and indemnification currently not found in the marketplace. Usage
rights of the new web-resolution product, an image file size of 500 KB 72
dpi, will vary according to the license model. Royalty-free imagery may be
licensed online today with rights-ready and rights-managed online licensing
in the coming weeks.
