Canto, a provider of digital asset management (DAM) solutions, and MediaSec Technologies, developer of watermarking technologies, have announced a new partnership targeted at protecting the ownership of digital assets. MediaSec has developed a tool that is designed to enhance Canto's flagship product, Cumulus, by applying digital watermarking to assets, which reduces copyright infringements and unwanted manipulation of assets such as digital photographs, artwork and videos.
MediaSec's MediaSign Digital Plug-in for Cumulus is intended to provide users with a secure and inexpensive method for watermarking digital assets - along with control over the management, use, and publication of these assets. MediaSign Digital Plug-in is immediately available for download in Canto´s e-Shop for $59 for Cumulus Single User 6.0.3. (Currently Windows platform only) Server versions of the plug in for Workgroup and Enterprise solutions will soon be available. Availability of versions for Mac OS X will depend on customer demand.
