SALT LAKE CITY, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Newscom, the world's largest multi-agency library of digital images, announces the launch of its sister company, Pixation Images: a spectacular new platform for licensing creative content for commercial use.  


Pixation Images has partnered with some of the best creative photographers and photo agencies from around the world to provide stunning and unique stock photography.  With partners like akg-images, Cultura, Danita Delimont, DPA, imagebroker, Robert Harding, and Tetra Images, Pixation Images has a rapidly growing collection of diverse content that includes travel, stock, lifestyle, and creative imagery. And those partners (along with many others) are also adding new content around the clock to ensure that clients will get to see the best and freshest pictures.

Commenting on the launch, CEO and President of Newscom, Scott Calder, said, "We are certain that Pixation Images' combination of the world's most advanced digital media technology plus its enormous and rapidly growing library of creative imagery will delight our customers. Moreover, we add thousands of images daily and continue to develop and implement innovative technologies to help users find exactly the image they need. We help our customers find amazing needles in very large haystacks."

Those who are familiar with Newscom (or Mainstream Data, Inc. which owns and operates both companies) will see a lot of similarities in what Pixation Images clients can expect. Pixation Images still has the same commitment to quality customer service and has the same leading technology platform that makes Newscom one of the best sites to find editorial images.

But the launch of the new product and new website (, and even the name, is a way to illustrate a new direction with company. Pixation Images is focused first (a "fixation" if you will) on providing the kind of quality creative images that will help clients sell their story.

"Pixation Images builds on Newscom's position as a leader in the content licensing marketplace and provides commercial clients with a welcome alternative," said BJ Warnick, Vice President of Sales, Rights, and Licensing at Pixation Images and Newscom.

Pixation Images is committed to customer service and ease of use. This means clients will be able to get help 24/7 and every client will have access to a real person when they have questions or need help. Pixation Images will also have free research available. 

Pixation Images is launched and now available for client registration. Visit to register for an account or email to learn more.
