Canto Releases Internet Client Pro 2.0.1 and Web Publisher Pro 2.0.1

Apr 08, 2005


Canto, a provider of digital asset management (DAM) solutions, has announced the immediate availability of Internet Client Pro 2.0.1 and Web Publisher Pro 2.0.1. Designed for users who do not merely publish their assets but also intend to use them for marketing and generating business, these options are compatible with Cumulus 6.5. Internet Client Pro 2.0.1 is a component of the Cumulus Business Server Solution and Cumulus Enterprise. Web Publisher Pro 2.0.1 is a component of the Cumulus Publishing Server Solution.

Internet Client Pro 2.0.1 and Web Publisher Pro 2.0.1 enable users to publish their media on dynamic Web pages allowing remote teams and customers to search for images and other documents within Cumulus catalogs using standard Web browsers. Compatibility with all Web browsers is ensured as the category tree is realized by a Java implementation at the server resulting in an HTML output. Customers can search, sort, and select items and place them in a collection basket. Valuable features such as sorting across several catalogs simultaneously, customizable Quicksearch and searching within category fields remain key features of the updates. The integrated ordering system enables users to choose a preferred method of asset delivery, be it download, email or physical fulfillment, e.g. CD-ROM.

With Internet Client Pro 2.0.1 users, according to their user rights, can also catalog new assets, assign assets to new categories, edit and update stored metadata, or check-in and check-out assets for local processing without having to install additional software. The upgraded Internet Options now allow the use of various Cumulus 6.5 authentication capabilities. User authentication can be based on passwords stored in the built-in authentication method or an LDAP server, on system passwords (e.g. domain passwords), and on other authentication systems.

Internet Client Pro 2.0.1 and Web Publisher Pro 2.0.1 are immediately available for download from Canto's eShop or from a Canto Sales partner. They ship with English, German, French, and Japanese user interface on Mac OS X, Windows, Solaris, and Linux platforms. Upgrades for existing Internet Option installations 1.x will be offered at attractive rates. Upgrades for existing Internet Options 2.0 are free. Customers who have bought Upgrade Advantage (UAP) receive the upgrade of their Internet Option for free.
