AudioMicro, Inc. operates a network of digital content licensing marketplaces, each targeted at a specific vertical - celebrity photos, stock music, sound effects, and YouTube monetization, as well as a few fun and undisclosed web projects.
Founded in 2007 and armed with a world-class engineering team, the Company has grown from a fledgling beta website to 3+ online brands and thousands of happy customers served. AudioMicro, Inc. is venture backed by DFJ Frontier, part of the largest VC network in the world with over $7B under management, and Fotolia LLC, a leading stock photo marketplace with over 12 million images and counting.
Details on the Company’s 3 brands:
AudioMicro.com = a collection of user-generated micro stock music, sound effects, production music, royalty free music, and music cues (“iStockphoto for Music.”)
ImageCollect.com = the micro stock photo licensing destination dedicated entirely to celebrity pictures with over 5 million royalty free images available via subscription (“Shutterstock for Celebrity Photos.”)
AdRev.net = a program that administrates the monetization of YouTube on behalf of music and video copyright holders such as record labels, publishers, production music libraries, TV studios.

ImageCollect is a micro-stock celebrity photo library. Like “iStockphoto”, but for celebrity images.
The ImageCollect photo library possesses over 3M images, all available by subscription for as little as $1 each. Created by veterans of the celebrity photo space, ImageCollect brings together a world-class picture delivery platform, a premier pool of photographers, and experienced entertainment industry vets.
Celebrity photos in the ImageCollect library range from iconic archival material, such as shots of a young and exuberant JFK in the oval office, to photos of todayâ€™s biggest stars attending red carpet events. ImageCollect aims to disrupt the celebrity photo market by applying the micro-stock business model of successful sites like iStockphoto, Shutterstock, and Fotolia to the editorial licensing space.
The company strives to make celebrity imagery available to new media buyers and fans under simple pricing and licensing terms. Customers include People Magazine, US Weekly, Life & Style, Tribune Media Services, NY Times Magazine, and Star Magazine, among many others.
