ClearStory Systems, Inc., a provider of contemporary digital asset management (DAM) solutions, has launched ActiveMedia CreativeConnections, a new module that extends the company's ActiveMedia solution. CreativeConnections allows designers and other creative professionals who use Adobe InDesign and QuarkXPress to interact with ActiveMedia without leaving their design applications.
CreativeConnections for Adobe InDesign CS2 is available immediately, while the QuarkXPress version will be released later in 2006. With CreativeConnections, creative professionals can search, view, download, insert, and upload content in ActiveMedia directly from InDesign and QuarkXPress, two page layout design applications. Layout files, photos, graphics, and other content can be accessed from anywhere on a network, based on an employee's permissions and privileges.
