Extensis Announces Portfolio 7 for Mac OS X

Cross-platform Digital Asset Management solution. (June 01, 2004)

Extensis Inc., today announced immediate availability of its leading Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution, Portfolio 7 and Portfolio Server 7 for Macintosh. Portfolio enables photographers, graphic artists and other individuals and workgroups - from those in small-to-medium sized organizations to multiple workgroups in global 2000 companies - to organize, retrieve, repurpose, and distribute digital files quickly. Portfolio Server also provides instant access to assets across the Internet and other wide area networks, opening the communication channel between distributed team members and partner networks, making asset management and collaboration easier and more efficient than ever before.

"Portfolio 7 for the Mac extends the great strides made in optimizing the previous version for the OS X platform," said Kevin Hurst, vice president of Marketing for Extensis. "While most DAM solutions are expensive, difficult to deploy, or do not have feature parity between the Mac and Windows versions, Portfolio leverages a history in creative design and Mac technology to provide an easy to learn interface and affordable solution that can be seamlessly deployed in a matter of hours into an existing workflow."


New Features in Portfolio 7 The most dramatic new addition to the Portfolio 7 Suite of products is NetPublish - an add-on module that automates the process of dynamically distributing Portfolio catalog contents through the Internet. With NetPublish, elegant full-featured websites can be created in seconds - with no knowledge of HL or JavaScript required. With a simple, wizard-like interface, and using professional-quality templates, users can build sites that include built-in image search, collection baskets, low-resolution previews and batch-download capabilities. A NetPublish Server brings the power of server-side JavaScript-based scripting, customizable templates, and real-time database access to a web server. Advanced users can access and edit the underlying NetPublish templates to create fully customized websites.

For greater efficiency and real-time collaboration, Portfolio's new AutoSync functionality allows users to assign tasks to Portfolio Server, enabling automatic synchronization. This feature also offloads file management and processing to Portfolio Server, boosting the system's overall workflow efficiency.

Other new features include One Click CD/DVD archiving, Batch Image Conversion that allows users to convert image files to JPEG or TIFF format, with controls for resolution, size and color mode, and Round-trip embedding of IPTC and XMP metadata into JPEG and TIFF files.
