Canto Releases Cumulus Internet Client Pro for the Enterprise

May 23, 2003

Canto, provider of Digital Asset Management solutions, has announced the availability of Cumulus Internet Client Pro. Internet Client Pro, part of the Cumulus Enterprise Edition, is based on Cumulus Java Classes and JSP technology and is especially designed for users who use their published assets for marketing and generating business. Internet Client Pro enables users to create dynamic Web pages allowing visitors to search for images and other documents within Cumulus catalogs using a standard Web browser, and then they can sort, select, and download the items. Visitors can also catalog new assets, assign assets to new categories, edit and update stored metadata, or check assets in and out for local processing. Internet Client Pro is flexible and customizable using high-end HTML editors. Internet Client Pro uses Cumulus' format conversion functions so that assets can be converted into other file formats, color spaces, or resolutions before downloading them. The integrated ordering system enables users to choose a preferred method of asset delivery-download, email or physical fulfillment, e.g. CD-ROM. A separate management of users and groups has now been implemented, based on the Cumulus database so that no additional installation and licensing efforts are required. Internet Client Pro is immediately available with English, German, Japanese, and French user interface on Mac OS X, Windows, Solaris, and Linux platforms. Internet Client Pro is only available for the Cumulus Enterprise Edition.
