Bruji updates media-database lineup to v5.0

updated 03:00 am EST, Thu November 10, 2011

More search sources, improved UI, more

Media-database developer Bruji has updated its consumer lineup of speciality inventory-tracking programs for various types of media, it's "Pedia" line, to version 5.0. DVDpedia, CDpedia, Bookpedia and Gamepedia allow collectors to scan the UPC code on various products (or enter them manually) in an iTunes-like interface that features Coverflow-style browsing and other features, including now a database option built and run by other Pedia users.

The new version adds additional search sources for information to supplement media titles -- including Wikipedia, Freebase and the new Doghouse database for Pedia users. More custom fields and media-centric fields have been added to the database, including fields of TV series in DVDpedia, comics in Bookpedia and board game entry in Gamepedia.

The programs now offer new filter options for the details view, as well as statistics (for example, how many commonalities -- such as the same director -- exist among movie entries). Version 5.0 also brings support for half-star ratings, trackpad gestures for the Coverflow view (including pinch-to-zoom in Grid view). The overall UI has been updated to match the Lion (OS X 10.7) color styles, and new templates for details have been added.

The company is celebrating the release of the new version by discounting the programs for this week only, offering each individual Pedia program for $12 each rather than their normal $18. The Mac App Store versions are similarly discounted for the week, selling for $13 each. Users of previous versions will receive a free update if they purchased their copies before October 1st of last year. For others, update prices start at $12 for one program and rise to $36 for the complete suite. All Pedias now require an Intel Mac and OS X 10.5 or higher as of version 5.0.
