NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 2, 2011) - RTG Ventures' (OTCBB: RTGV) media research and technology division, RTG Media, is launching a cloud-based digital asset management (DAM) service,, for corporations that own digital media assets. The comprehensive service offers a secure and cost effective way of managing media assets with easy access from any internet enabled device.

Many organizations have valuable media assets such as artwork, photography, recordings, video and film languishing in back rooms, uncataloged, not backed up and not being monetized. offers a robust 24/7 cataloging and archiving solution with automatic back up, access from anywhere and a highly visual interface for easy management.

Colin Burgess, RTG Media's Technology Director, said: " was borne out of the needs we identified while working with record labels on the CloudChannel product and because of my specific expertise, we were able to create a solution very quickly.

"I don't think we've come across a single company in our space that doesn't like the idea of what CloudChannel can do for them, but many organizations don't have their whole back catalogue in good enough shape to be able to take advantage of its unique monetization methods. It quickly became clear that there was a role for us in organizing the catalogues prior to monetizing them and to do that, we needed a tool. Meeting another unidentified business need will give RTG an additional source of revenue and illustrates one of our core values of being opportunity driven. This new technology will act as a stepping stone towards full integration with CloudChannel.

"When we couldn't find a solution at the right price to buy, we decided to build our own and it's been so well received, that we're now opening it up to the wider market by selling it online as a web application. For our core markets, we're wrapping a service layer around the product providing not just the technical infrastructure, but also the people they need to get their assets properly cataloged and archived."

Once digital assets are uploaded to they can be shared with colleagues anywhere in the world and with professional packages starting at just $29.99 per month, is affordable to all.
