Extensis Announces Portfolio 7.0 for Windows

May 14, 2004

Extensis Inc. has announced the immediate availability of its digital asset management (DAM) solution, Portfolio 7 and Portfolio Server 7 for Windows (Macintosh versions will be available in May). Portfolio is designed to enable photographers, graphic artists, and other individuals and workgroups to organize, retrieve, repurpose, and distribute digital files quickly. Portfolio Server also provides access to assets across the Internet and other wide area networks, opening the communication channel between distributed team members and partner networks.

For real-time collaboration, Portfolio's new AutoSync functionality allows users to assign tasks to Portfolio Server, enabling automatic synchronization. This feature also offloads file management and processing to Portfolio Server, boosting the system's overall workflow efficiency.  

Another new addition to the Portfolio 7 Suite of products is NetPublish, an add-on module that automates the process of turning Portfolio catalogs into full-featured Web sites, without requiring any knowledge of HTML or JavaScript. With a wizard-like interface and templates, users can build sites that include built-in image search, collection baskets, low-resolution previews, and batch-download capabilities. A NetPublish Server provides server-side JavaScript-based scripting, customizable templates, and real-time database access to a Web server. Advanced users can access and edit the underlying NetPublish templates to create fully customized Web sites.

Portfolio 7 Client supports Windows 2000, XP Home, XP Professional, and QuickTime 6.4 or higher. Portfolio 7 Server supports Windows 2000 and 2003 Server. Portfolio NetPublish requires Microsoft IIS Versions 5.1 or 6.0. .
