Skinny WebPortal Digital Asset Management Product Released in Record Time

Tuesday, February 05, 2002

Press release from the issuing company

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--Skinny Technologies President & CEO Daniel Walters is pleased to announce the commercial release of the company's Skinny WebPortal product only one week after entering into a licensing agreement with software developer Where?Media. Skinny WebPortal is a web-enabled digital asset management system that allows users to manage the production, transmission, proofing and archival of high resolution prepress images over the Internetat lightning speed using the company's proprietary SkinnyScript technology. This new product is targeted at the publishing, prepress service bureau, printing and advertising markets. Walters anticipates that this first niche market solution will set the stage for many more specialized applications of the company's revolutionary SkinnyScript technology. He is also encouraged by how quickly software developer Where?Media was able to integrate SkinnyScript support into their ImagePortal product. Actual image data file conversion in this first release of Skinny WebPortal incorporates the use of the company's recently released SkinnyScriptServer. Attested Where?Media CEO Benoit Manecjee, "We thought it would take us at least a month to customize our software to use the Skinny image encoding format. Once we began working on it we quickly realized we only needed to add Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) and Acrobat (PDF) file support in our software in order to read and archive Skinny files. Without any technical barriers, it is easy to imagine how easily this revolutionary process could be adopted as a defacto standard by the print industry in the near future.'' Skinny Technologies has made an on-line demo version of Skinny WebPortal available from its web site. The portal runson a server hosted by Vancouver, B.C. based Data Fortress and sits on Big Pipe's high band-width fibre-optic backbone. The Company expects to license the Skinny WebPortal as a service to the prepress sector through CopyDot Prepress Inc. and as a stand-alone product in the publishing, printing and advertising sector
