Getty Images has officially announced a new API platform that will allow customers to build content libraries and search technology (e.g., metadata, etc.) directly into their products and services.
The aim is to provide real-time access to constantly refreshed and updated Getty content, which was only available previously by visiting its website.
“Connect makes it easy for customers and partners to integrate Getty Images’ tremendous breadth of content, our rich-set of metadata and industry leading search within their platform, products, services, and applications,” said Jonathan Klein, co-founder and CEO of Getty Images. “The platform is a comprehensive, customizable and scalable solution that enables businesses to improve their products, streamline workflows, reduce storage costs and launch compelling new services.”
Getty says that since its launch, more than 40 companies ranging from media companies, digital media and advertising services, as well as mobile and web-based applications are currently using Connect. Now, the service is available to all Getty customers.
E-mail marketing industry veteran Nicole Delma has left the magazines, and all the vowels in the alphabet, for RCRD LBL, a music discovery platform with free MP3 downloads. As chief data officer, she’ll be in charge of growth, marketing and product development for RCRD LBL’s e-mail and data program and products.
Delma was the head of e-mail marketing operations for Condé Nast publications from 2005 to 2009, where she managed the e-mail marketing branch of the company’s database marketing team responsible for the annual e-mail deployments on behalf of Condé Nast’s 28 titles and its advertising partners. Delma also led the e-mail promotions for Condé Nast’s Fashion Rocks, Shop Vogue, W Desires, Glamour Reel Music and Reel Moments, GQ Man of the Year and The New Yorker Festival. She established Condé Nast’s e-mail Best Practice center and led quarterly e-mail training seminars.
Her most recent stop was at Getty Images, where she developed and executed Getty Images Global internal and partner e-mail marketing programs for Getty Images, Photos.com, Clipart, Thinkstock, Jupiter Images, Pump Audio, Getty Images Music, Punchstock, iStock, Flickr, and Adobe.
Located in Soho, RCRD LBL launched in 2007 as a joint venture between Downtown Music and Peter Rojas, the creator of Engadget, Gizmodo and Weblogs, Inc. The company delivers a curated selection of free MP3s to its users with a RCRD of the Day daily e-mail newsletter.
