From WMBD/WYZZ, Jupiter Images Lays of 100 Peoria Workers:
"Jupiter Images, originally known as Dynamic Graphics, employed a total of 400 people worldwide.
Company CEO Alan Mechler [see note below] tells us they lost 40% of their business after what he calls a 'technology internet revolution' changed their competitive landscape.
Mechler says the images the company used to sell for $300 a piece could now be purchased for as little as $3 by competitors. Thus leaving the company no other option but to sell the company to Getty images or go bankrupt.
All 400 worldwide employees from England to Australia will be laid off between April and September. One hundred of those employees are based in Peoria."
