Digital Storage Manager
MetaCommunications today released , an intranet search and archive management system designed for groups of people in the creative profession. The software is designed to help users find files, manage metadata, and archive important information. Users can index online servers, archive files within a production environment, and automatically apply job/folder/file metadata that can later be used in searches. The update adds a Mac OS X development environment, plug-in support for Adobe's Creative Suite 2, and integration with Rimage CD/DVD duplication equipment (pricing and system requirements were unavailable).
An SDK (software developer kit) is available for Digital Storage Manager which allows users to integrate with third-party systems, including FileMaker Pro. Third-party production or marketing systems using the SDK can be queried for metadata that can be automatically applied to files or folders.
