Photo agency giant Getty Images has released Connect by Getty Images, an innovative new content distribution service that allows customers and business partners to integrate Getty Images’ core functionality and robust content and metadata directly within their publishing tools, products and services through use of the company’s powerful and flexible API.
They say: “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.”
By utilising Connect, Getty Images customers and partners gain direct and immediate access to constantly refreshed and updated content in real-time, as well as Getty Images’ advanced metadata and search functionality – only available previously by visiting the main agency site.
