Extensis Expands Portfolio 5 to Include Support for CD/DVD Jukebox Systems
Press release from the issuing company
PORTLAND, Ore.--July 16, 2001--Extensis today announced their intent to release a free Portfolio 5 update to support access to PowerFile's C200 CD/DVD Jukebox system.
With this updater, Portfolio 5 owners will have the ability to randomly access 200 CDs from their PowerFile CD/DVD jukebox. This is the first CD/DVD jukebox system for which Portfolio offers seamless and direct support.
The updater will be free of charge to registered Portfolio 5 users, and will be available in August through the Extensis web site at www.extensis.com.
"The ability to randomly access 200 CD's worth of images has made the PowerFile very popular with our graphics professional customers. By adding Portfolio to the system, users can have near effortless access to more than 100 gigabytes of data,'' said Joseph Schorr, Portfolio product manager. "This is a perfect example of Extensis responding to the needs of our customers.''
"By integrating support into Portfolio, our users can simply click on a thumbnail or do a keyword search to retrieve files from any of the CDs in the jukebox,'' explains Schorr. The update also allows users to automatically catalog each CD already stored in the PowerFile jukebox.
"As many of PowerFile's customers are graphics professionals with digital files they need to catalog and then access repeatedly,'' says Brady Bargenquast, C200 project manager for PowerFile. "Extensis Portfolio is a perfect interface through which to catalog and access their files from our C200 CD/DVD Jukebox.''
