Big 12 Conference Selects Libris for its Digital Asset Management System
Powerful solution enables easy, secure access and management of 70,000 plus photos; speeds time-sensitive images to digital and social platforms
New York, NY - September 21, 2015 - PhotoShelter (www.photoshelter.com), the world’s leading professional photography cloud service, today announced that its Libris digital asset management business unit has partnered with the Big 12 Conference, one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences.
Libris is a simple and powerful cloud-based system designed to empower organizations – from SMBs to large enterprise teams -- to efficiently and securely organize, collaborate and share their visual assets.
The Big 12 Conference first saw the power of Libris in action at the 2015 CoSIDA Convention and shortly thereafter determined that the system would resolve several challenges they faced. Libris enables them to easily access, manage and tap 20 years of Big 12 Conference photography archives and better promote the Big 12, its member institutions and the accomplishments of the coaches and student-athletes.
“At the Big 12 Conference we access hundreds of pictures – past and present images of student-athletes and coaches - and we need to get to them quickly,” said Rob Carolla, Director of Communications, Big 12 Conference. “Whether it’s from a school photographer on campus or one working our championships, we have accumulated an archive of over 70,000 images. Libris will help us to push out time-sensitive photos via our digital and social platforms, while seamlessly meeting the demands of all our constituents efficiently and securely.”
“We are delighted the Big 12 Conference has selected Libris as its digital asset management solution. Our software enables the Big 12 to fully exploit the wealth of content it needs to access whether for in-game image galleries or slideshows, post-game recaps and social media,” said Andrew Fingerman, CEO of PhotoShelter. “Libris ensures the Big 12 can meet the time sensitive and immediate demands of fans, colleges, reporters who need to get images quickly and securely. With over 100 universities as clients, and now multiple large sports conferences too, we are proud to be recognized as the leading solution for managing visual content assets at the collegiate level.”
