Cumulus 8 released
Canto has updated its flagship product, Cumulus 8. The program is used to manage digital assets including digital images, animations, videos, and music over an online server. Cumulus 8 now gathers usage statistics and includes a reporting feature which assigns a value to assets by noting which are used most. The update can also organize assets via e-mail, enabling mobile device photos or security-camera feeds to be uploaded over a secure network.
The program speed is claimed to be improved, with the ability to record over 8,000 assets in the same time Version 7 required to process 40 entries. Cumulus 8 also features user commenting, user-defined search parameters, full-screen asset previews, image watermarking capabilities and image editing.
Cumulus 8 requires Mac OS X 10.4 and Mac OS X Server 10.4. Additional purchasing information is available from Canto sales representatives.
