Luminate, Inc. Announces Partnership with Getty Images, Inc. to Unlock Value with Image Metadata

Luminate, Inc. announced that it will partner with Getty Images, the leading creator and distributor of digital media, to integrate Getty Images' original metadata into Luminate's image app platform. By incorporating Getty Images' metadata and ImageIRC(TM) technology into the image app, Luminate enables publishers to increase consumer interactivity with digital imagery elevating user engagement through visual content. Luminate will leverage Getty Images' industry-leading capabilities in identifying and cataloging millions of images with its powerful platform for image applications to power new products and initiatives. Luminate will integrate Getty images' metadata into its platform to transform millions of already published images into the most engaging element of a webpage. This partnership was born out of these brands' shared dedication to improve the engagement and value generation from imagery. Luminate has long employed a combination of algorithms and crowdsourcing to match content with images. By integrating Getty Images metadata into its image app platform, Luminate's offering becomes faster, more accurate and more comprehensive. For example, Luminate will incorporate Getty Images metadata into its popular Related Tweets image app that allows consumers to view recent tweets related to the information within the image. The inclusion of the metadata will enable the Related Tweets functionality in more images across Luminate's growing network of more than 5,000 publisher sites. Supplementing human crowdsourcing with metadata analysis will also deliver the application to consumers more rapidly.
