PRESS RELEASE: Canto Releases Cumulus 6
New version delivers ease-of-use as a central feature by simplifying creation, management and deployment of Digital Assets
December 3, 2003, San Francisco, Berlin. Canto, a global leader in Digital Asset Management (DAM) solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Cumulus 6 (Single User, Workgroup and Enterprise), with ease-of-use being the central feature of its upgraded product line. The new server-centric concept behind the Workgroup Server Solutions and Enterprise also dramatically simplifies the users' daily work when managing assets. Cumulus 6 is available for immediate download today from the Canto online eshop (https://eshop.canto.com/eshop.html).
Cumulus 6 packs an impressive list of new features. All assets can now be managed and made accessible centrally in one window, allowing to create virtual asset repositories. Also, users can now easily switch between different views with preconfigured View Sets and even display the information they find relevant with regard to format or task.
Cumulus 6 also offers Asset Handling Sets for optimized handling of different formats. In Workgroup and Enterprise these preconfigured sets can be edited and provided centrally by the administrator.
Furthermore, with Cumulus 6, Mac OS X clients and Single User version will be offered for the first time. Native support for the entire product line is a significant enhancement especially for creative professionals where Mac OS X represents the leading platform.
"With Cumulus 6 we finally complete our goal to offer the broad range of our technologies and products on all the leading platforms," said Canto's CEO Jennifer Neumann. "And especially that all our offerings are available on Mac OS X and take great advantage of Apple's most modern platform will be a great value for many of our customers."
"With over 150 new features, Mac OS X "Panther" is way ahead of the competition and sets new standards for desktop operating systems making it the platform of choice for the design and publishing industry," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "Cumulus 6 delivers a powerful, yet easy to use tool to manage digital files for creative professionals and is a natural fit with the advanced technologies of Mac OS X."
The release of Cumulus 6 also marks the introduction of the revolutionary EJaP (Embedded Java PlugIn) technology. Both customers and system integrators can customize the available out-of-the-box solutions to meet their specific needs. In a nutshell, the administration of tailor-made solutions is now a possibility. Integrating Cumulus 6 into any workflow, be it Enterprise Portal or Enterprise Content Management becomes a breeze.
Cumulus 6 Single User and Workgroup are available immediately for download. Server versions for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux and Solaris, and Client and Single User versions for Mac OS X and Windows will be offered. Upgrades will be offered for existing installations. Users who participate in the Upgrade Advantage Program will receive this upgrade within that UAP.
