ImageVision Wins Photobucket
Dallas-based ImageVision, a venture-backed startup which is developing content safety and filtering technology, said Tuesday that it has scored a win with photo sharing site Photobucket. The firm said that Photobucket has integrated its visual search technology into its content-security process, to help screen and filter user-generated uploads for inappropriate content. Financial impact of the win was not disclosed. ImageVision said its technology is being used to help Photobucket streamline its operation costs, by more accurately flagging images for human review. ImageVision is venture backed by Walden Venture Capital, Global Media, Western Technology investment, Rapoport Investments, and Tech WildCatters, and is headed by Steven White.
