Canto to Release Upgrades to Digital Asset Managment Tools
May 9, 2005 -- San Francisco, Berlin. Canto, the global leader in Digital Asset Management (DAM) solutions, today announced that Internet Client Pro 3.0 and Web Publisher Pro 3.0 will be released in July 2005 in tandem with Cumulus 6.5.1.
These are designed for users who not only publish their assets but also intend to use them for marketing purposes and for business generation. The major upgrades of Canto´s Internet Options support central features of Cumulus 6.5. Internet Client Pro 3.0 is a component of the Cumulus Business Server Solution and Cumulus Enterprise. Web Publisher Pro 3.0 is a component of the Cumulus Publishing Server Solution.
Internet Client Pro 3.0 and Web Publisher Pro 3.0 enable users to publish their media on dynamic web pages which allow remote teams and customers around the world to comfortably search for images and other documents within Cumulus catalogs, using standard Web browsers. In addition to the known valuable features, the Internet Options now support Cumulus 6.5 central features. The Internet Options now include many functions for easy administration and web-collaboration formerly restricted to the Cumulus Client.
The updated Internet Options support Cumulus Actions, a feature of Cumulus 6.5 that enables the user to perform a combination of tasks in one quick step. The user can choose from a number of Actions configured by the administrator, such as format conversions in combination with water marking (3rd party product). The administrator no longer needs to enter a lengthy string of parameters to create a rendition but easily configures the format conversions using the Cumulus Client.
Internet Client Pro 3.0 additionally supports Metadata Templates. This is a feature ensuring consistency of entered data by supplying a template in which the data is entered. Internet Client Pro 3.0 uses the Metadata Templates that were created by the administrator using the Client. Cumulus Actions and Metadata Templates are defined only once by the Administrator, and can be employed by users accessing Cumulus catalogs via the new Internet Options or the Cumulus Client application.
