Cumulus Web Publisher Pro Now Available

Dec 06, 2002

Canto, a provider of DAM solutions, has announced the immediate availability of "Web Publisher Pro", a new Option that allows users to publish Cumulus catalogs and to market digital assets on dynamic Web pages on the Internet. The new Option is based on the Cumulus Java Classes and JSP technology and is designed for users intend to use their published assets for marketing and generating business, as is the case in marketing departments, ad agencies, publishing houses, PR departments, and also in museums, mail-order-houses, and other users. The new Internet solution is compatible with Cumulus Workgroup Edition and Enterprise Edition. Web Publisher 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. The new Option features an incorporated ordering system and offers improved performance over the existing Cumulus Web Publisher Option, which will continue to be offered. Web Publisher 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. Web Publisher Pro is based on the Cumulus Java Classes and JSP technology. Contrary to Java script implementations, all actions are performed on the server with the Java implementation used here. Web Publisher Pro is immediately available with English, German, and French user interfaces on Mac OS X, Windows, Solaris, and Linux platforms. Web Publisher Pro costs $1495 per server installation and is available from a Canto sales partner or in Canto's eShop. Upgrades for existing Web Publisher installations are offered. UAP customers who signed their Web Publisher UAP agreement before November 30, 2002 will get the upgrade as part of the Upgrade Advantage Program. Online demos as well as demo versions for download are available.
