NetXposure expands DAM
for Mac OS X, a Web-based digital asset management (DAM) solution smartly centralizes, processes and leverages companies' digital assets. It adds major functionality additions from InCaddy, the Adobe InDesign software plug-in and other enterprise-wide integration capabilities. NetXposure also launched Hexafoo for Mac OS X, an entry-level DAM that offers customizable categories, access control, modular expansion, easy integration, and InDesign integration.
Hexafoo is built on NetXposure's flexible Web application framework; the server application is capable of linking to other technologies such as Adobe's InDesign software to allow for easier asset distribution and supports fast delivery of multiple files via batch loading. Other features include metadata support; a powerful, advanced search engine that queries in-file text as well as metadata sources files; both user and group management and permissions; expansion modules such as Web Services, LDAP Support and the InCaddy plug-in; and the InCaddy plugin for InDesign, which connects to the central repository, enabling convenient import/export of assets.
Image Portal X expands DAM via Adobe technology integration
Image Portal X previously streamlined business operations with batch processing, extensive metadata tagging, and access control. The solution offers an enhanced feature set that opens doors to creative, new uses for a centralized DAM system. LDAP support is available to link a company's contact database with Image Portal's permission-based access control features. It can automatically assign user access-levels as each individual is added to the database eliminates the need for an administrator to manually engage Image Portal users. Also new to Image Portal X is the Web Services ability, enabling the corporate DAM solution to communicate with external computer systems to speed the sharing of critical information.
For Adobe InDesign software users, Image Portal X supports InCaddy -- the smart plug-in linking directly to Image Portal's repository and processing engine from the InDesign menu bar. Image Portal X's current version also includes advanced search capabilities that allow for multiple keyword queries as well as in-text searches.
