iView Multimedia today released iView MediaPro 3.1, an upgrade of its award-winning, cross-platform digital asset management application. MediaPro is now a Universal Binary applicatio, running natively on Intel-based Macs. Version 3.1 also features the new Notepad tool, designed to enable communication between creative professionals and their clients.
Notepad enables communication between a MediaPro user and their client. The client simply drags and drops selected catalog items onto the Notepad palette, adds comments and then emails the Notepad file. This Notepad file imports easily into the creative professional's original catalog where they can view the client's feedback and execute the appropriate actions.
Improved Catalog Reader
iView also announced an improved Catalog Reader, the free utility that allows MediaPro users to distribute and share iView catalogs with anyone using a Windows or Macintosh machine. The addition of Light Table functionality enables Catalog Reader users to view and compare up to 6 images on-screen and mark items with labels and ratings to aid the image selection process. iView Catalog Reader supports all 100+ media file formats of MediaPro, offers slide show and search functionality and supports Notepad. iView customers can now include a MediaPro catalog and copy of Catalog Reader on a CD or DVD and their clients can launch and run the catalog directly from the disc, without installing an iView application.
Designed for creative professionals, iView MediaPro 3.1 also delivers features such as:
• Increased maximum number of images on-screen in the Light Table to six.
• Enhanced slide show support for more than 32,000 items.
• Import/export of color label metadata in XML files.
• Toolbar text searches are now asynchronous ? search results are displayed as they are found.
• Improved overall performance on both Macintosh and Windows systems.
For a complete list of improvements, download the version history document (PDF, 28KB).

The update is free for registered users of MediaPro 3.x and works best with the latest version of QuickTime (7.x) from Apple, which the company strongly recommends to both Windows and Macintosh users.
An updated manual for iView MediaPro 3.1 will shortly be available on the iView support page.
