geogphotos Posted October 9, 2021 Share Posted October 9, 2021 I like to keep my eye on industry news by visiting the BAPLA site from time to time. I have read through this several times and visited the websites of the two companies. I am not really much the wiser. I think that Image Data Systems is some sort of image aggregator so perhaps our images already end up with them? Never heard of them before. Uk based and been going for 30 years. https://bapla.org.uk/fadel-acquires-uk-based-company-image-data-systems-ids/ FADEL®, innovator of brand compliance, rights management and royalty billing software, today announced the acquisition of Image Data Systems (IDS). IDS brings over 30 years experience in image and video management providing production agencies and media publishers with a fast and scalable cloud-based content services platform. Our combined solutions will broaden our cloud platform offerings to deliver content services, licensing and rights management, digital content tracking and sophisticated AI powered image and video search and recognition. Our end-to-end brand management and compliance solutions deliver significant advantages to global marketing departments at major brands worldwide. Additionally, IDS’ PictureDesk service arms content consumers, brand managers and editors with a photo marketplace featuring over 100 million licensable images. Any idea what this actually means? Does it have relevance to us at Alamy? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
