To simply put, we have been acquired!
For the past couple of years we have been working hard to enhance our technological solutions, the de facto: scalable, near exact match, visual search engine. Using this visual search engine as a backbone, allowed us to envision and to develop many of our great products.
Not surprisingly, PicScout not only became the market leader in the image copyright solutions, but also provided unique solutions in the terms of crediting every image on the web.
On a personal note; Serving as a VP R&D during this time, building the architecture, driving the technology and working with the greatest team ever - was remarkable and enjoyable. I am happy to be a part of a great team where professionalism matters and which employs many of the Software Craftsmanship values, I so deeply encourage!
A few moments ago, we have officially announced that we (PicScout) have been acquired by Getty
I am sure that our unique technological value will continue to benefit to the world of images.
