Canto Cumulus 7.6 update
Canto has announced the release of Cumulus 7.6, the latest update of its digital asset management software. This version features built-in rendering of PDF files- thumbnails and previews can be generated on any operating system or web browser without Acrobat. PowerPoint capabilities have also been improved, allowing presentations to be produced on a web browser, without PowerPoint installed, and stored on portable drives.
Watermarking is another advanced feature offered in v7.6, allowing images to be stamped. An upgrade is available to allow "persistent" watermarks that remain even when the image is copied or altered, according to Canto. The overall objective of Cumulus is organization, searching, and tracking of files used by organizations. Cumulus 7.6 is available from Canto for customers with active service agreements.
