ALCHEMEDIA DEBUTS WEB-BASED IMAGE PROTECTION.
Alchemedia's Clever Content technology protects images from "Napsterization" (peer-to-peer sharing of digital content), and promotes image-based commerce by preventing copying, printing and screen capturing of images.
"Image protection is crucial for people with digital content posted on the Web," said Albert Porter, professional photographer. "I've been withholding my most valuable images from my site because of the ease with which my work can be taken. With Clever Content Creator, I can protect my work from unauthorized use and gain control of my images."
"As a Web site developer, I find that my clients have a tremendous need for Clever Content Creator," said Joel Spring, Web developer and associate at Comsite International. "Since the introduction of Clever Content image protection software, I've eagerly awaited a solution for smaller companies who are either hosting their sites on my server or on ISPs."
Clever Content is used by organizations such as Terraserver.com; Variety.com; Greenfield Online; The City of Barrie, Canada; Toonscape; Photo District News; Advertising Photographers of America and Candid Color Systems. Clever Content Creator expands the market of users of Clever Content technology, allowing all Web site owners to benefit from the revenue producing capabilities of their Web content while enhancing the quality and viewing experience for their visitors.
"With Clever Content Creator, we are providing image protection solutions for everyone using the World Wide Web -- a longtime Alchemedia goal. Building on the success of Clever Content Server, all content owners can now take advantage of the image-based commerce possibilities offered on the Internet. With close to 3 million Clever Content Viewers installed, Clever Content is rapidly becoming the standard for digital image protection," said Daniel Schreiber, CEO and co-founder of Alchemedia.
