MetaCommunications Releases Digital Storage Manager 1.5

Thursday, January 12, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

IOWA CITY, Iowa, Jan. 11 -- MetaCommunications, Inc., a leading developer of business management and workflow solutions for the graphic arts industry, today announced the immediate availability of Digital Storage Manager 1.5, the first Intranet search and archive management system for creative workgroups. A powerful and intuitive product, Digital Storage Manager dramatically improves the ability of users to find files, manage metadata and archive. Creative workgroups (including prepress, publishing, design, web and photo) can index their online servers, archive files within a production environment, and automatically apply job, folder or file metadata which can later be used to search on. Version 1.5 improves upon version 1.0 with the addition of a Mac OS X development environment, plug-in support for Adobe's Creative Suite, and seamless integration with Rimage CD/DVD duplication equipment. Digital Storage Manager's new Mac OS X development environment includes: - Advanced WYSIWYG forms editor - MetaScript (JavaScript) Editor - Precision Format Palettes - Inline Control Palettes - Multi-object Align and Edit Tools - Form Zoom Digital Storage Manager 1.5's Production Pack now includes plug-in support for CS2 InDesign and CS2 Illustrator. These plug-ins provide document deconstruction for Digital Storage Manager's InterSync(TM) indexing technology -- enabling rich metadata to be extracted from these files. Additionally, the plug-ins provide the ability to lookup metadata directly from the native application. Rimage CD/DVD duplicator support has been added to Digital Storage Manager's powerful Archiving toolset. This new seamless integration allows users to archive directly to Rimage equipment, providing completely automated CD/DVD burning, duplicate media, and inline CD/DVD printing and labeling. "Version 1.5 adds capabilities to Digital Storage Manager found only in a few products costing six figures or more. Now our customers and prospects can benefit from tools and capabilities once reserved for large organizations with large budgets," said Robert T. Long, Executive Vice President of MetaCommunications. PRICING & AVAILABILITY Digital Storage Manager offers enterprise technology at a desktop price. Upgrades are available for a limited time free of charge to all Digital Storage Manager version 1.0 customers. Digital Storage Manager licensing is based on the total storage under management. Mac OS X and Web client access is unlimited. Pricing for storage increments of 100 GB, 250 GB, 1 TB, 2.5 TB, 5 TB, and Unlimited are available.
