NetXposure Announces Image Portal 3.0Also announces InCaddy Plug-In for Adobe InDesign CS (July 20, 2004)
NetXposure, Inc., a leader in focused Web applications, announced the release of Image Portal 3.0 and the immediate availability of InCaddy Plug-In for Adobe InDesign CS while at the Adobe Partners in Publishing Conference & Expo in Chicago. The 3.0 version of Image Portal is the most advanced edition to date of this affordable web-based digital asset management solution with Adobe's image processing technology built in. The InCaddy Plug-In for Adobe InDesign CS is NetXposure's latest application for improving workflow for users of Adobe InDesign.
Image Portal 3.0 provides a central repository for storing, organizing, processing and distributing large libraries of digital files. Adobe Graphics Server is built in, enabling users to automate the process of resizing, sharpening, or repurposing images into a variety of formats for the Web or print. Access to these powerful features is enabled through an interface with unparalleled ease-of-use and security from a Web-based application.
"The functionality that has traditionally been available only in high-end enterprise digital asset management solutions is becoming increasingly in demand at the departmental level," said Scott Eilers, NetXposure's Director of Sales and Marketing. "This latest version of Image Portal brings these features to marketing and creative professionals at a very affordable price point."
New features in the Image Portal 3.0 version include:
-- Versioning - tracks and saves all versions of a file
-- WebDAV - allowing administrators to bypass the web interface and collaboratively edit and manage files on remote Web servers.
-- LDAP Support - enables linking to Directory Server for access level assignments and quicker asset disbursements.
-- Check In / Check Out - enables designers to lock an asset while it is being used, and check it back in when it is available again.
-- Auto-Tasking - enables users set up filters to recognize certain types of files and automatically perform tasks to them such as file attribute changes, routing to preset folders, and distribution outside of Image Portal.
-- Batch Tasking - enables users perform tasks on large groups of files such as upload / download, image editing / repurposing, metadata updating, category re-assignment, and distribution.
-- Preset Process - enables administrators to simplify, control, or standardize image processing choices by creating predefine processing options that are optimized for particular uses.
Standard features continued in the latest release include:
-- Adobe Graphics Server built in - automates the creation and repurposing of graphics for print and the Web.
-- Web Services - allows applications to execute operations and exchange data with XML messaging.
-- Watch-Folder Utility - enables ftp importing that continually checks for new items to process.
-- Advance Search - enables customized searches of large file libraries.
-- Text Search - ability to text search Office and PDF documents, as well as a variety of other formats.
-- Language Localization - reads browser setting and automatically localizes for English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and Korean.
"With this latest version of Image Portal, NetXposure delivers a full-featured, yet cost-effective DAM solution that will definitely turn some heads in our industry", said Daniel Rawles, IT Director for the UK's Reaction Media Group.
InCaddy allows InDesign users to sync in with Image Portal for seamless workflow automation. Image Portal is accessed from the InDesign interface via a palette that allows for keyword search of all digital assets. Low resolution thumbnails from search results can be dragged and dropped into the InDesign document where a medium resolution image is generated. When the user prints the document a high resolution file is retrieved and inserted into the document. The latest version of InCaddy is fully compatible with Adobe Creative Suite.
InCaddy is now available for purchase and NetXposure will make Image Portal 3.0 available for purchase in late July.
