May 24, 2005

ClearStory Systems, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, and Agfa Corporation, a provider of prepress and imaging technology, have announced a new dynamic collaboration module as part of their joint product development and OEM agreement to bring digital asset management (DAM) technologies to the prepress market. ClearStory's ActiveMedia software is core to Agfa's :Arcadia solution, a dynamic publishing and asset management system.

:Arcadia is a dynamic publishing and digital asset management system based on ClearStory Systems' ActiveMedia digital asset management technology. Agfa chose the ClearStory solution for its framework and open architecture. Agfa is the exclusive OEM for ActiveMedia digital asset management for the print and publishing industry. Enabling Agfa customers such as commercial, publication, and packaging printers to maintain greater control over content throughout multiple project revisions is a major goal of the Agfa-ClearStory partnership. Agfa's :Arcadia, built on ActiveMedia, is integrated with Agfa's :ApogeeX, an automated digital workflow solution, and :Delano, an Internet-based production management system that streamlines and automates the workflow of printing and publishing projects. The combined solution is currently available in North America through Agfa.
