Canto Single User
Canto has announced Canto Single User, the return of its Canto-branded digital asset management (DAM). Based on Cumulus 8 technologies, the software provides an interface for cataloging and organizing any type of digital file. Canto is designed for both professionals and hobbyist's and enables users to manage files stored on local drives, CDs and DVDs, networked computers and networked attached devices. Users can also share their files with other people through the web or e-mail.
Support is included for IPTC, XMP, EXIF, and over 200 digital camera RAW formats. Several of the file-finding options included in the software allow users to search via category browsing, keyword searching, file relations and complex query construction. Additional capabilities deliver a built-in image editor, watermarking, and file processing options for managing document masters and creating variants.
Canto Single User is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and will be available through Canto partners who handle promotions, sales distribution and support directly. Currently Canto partners in Germany, Australia and France have announced the availability of the software.
