Press release from the issuing company

PORTLAND, Ore.--March 31, 2003-- NetXposure, Inc., a leader in providing focused Web applications, today announced they have extended their long-standing relationship with Adobe Systems Incorporated by completing a worldwide OEM agreement for Adobe Graphics Server and will simultaneously release Image Portal 2.0. NetXposure's Image Portal 2.0 is a customized web application that leverages Adobe Graphics Server software to provide businesses with the capabilities of an enterprise digital asset management system at an affordable price point. "Image Portal 2.0 was designed to fill the void in the digital asset management solutions market," said Devin Donnelly, president of NetXposure. "We focused on the specific digital asset management requirements for marketing, IT and creative managers in corporations and agencies. Today we are delivering a product that provides the vital functions of an enterprise digital asset management solution without the heavy price tag." Until now, enterprise digital asset management solutions have been out of reach for most organizations, offering extensive, yet often unused functionality. Image Portal 2.0 makes dynamic imaging and image management affordable by unlocking the value of digital assets and streamlining workflow in browser-based solution that eliminates the need for special software and frees users from platform limitations. "Throughout our long-standing relationship with NetXposure, as both a customer and partner, they have demonstrated a deep understanding of our products and capabilities," said Shawn Cadeau, director of product marketing at Adobe Systems Inc. "Image Portal 2.0 leverages the power of Adobe Graphics Server to streamline the process of managing large image libraries." In addition to streamlining the workflow process, Image Portal 2.0 provides a suite of image processing tools for manipulating a single image or an entire batch. Once images are processed, files may be distributed in a variety of formats such as JPEG, PSD and TIFF. Image Portal 2.0 provides a layer of management, control, and access functionality to an image repository. Image Portal supports XMP, EXIF and IPTC image metadata that can be searched, viewed and edited with the same interface that is used to browse, process and download images. Individual image control allows administrators to customize fields for expanded flexibility and tailor access to individuals or groups with a simple tiered structure. "From the beginning of our relationship, NetXposure has had a keen eye to delivering a solution that has an ROI model built into the product," said Kevin Peoples, eBusiness Manager at Salomon North America. "With Image Portal, our North American teams gain access to images while we maintain control. Now our designers can focus on creative while we save a tremendous amount of time, effort and money by automating the process." NetXposure's Image Portal 2.0 is available now in English and Japanese versions for both Microsoft Windows and Sun Microsystems Solaris with a base price of $24,995 (US) including a license for Adobe Graphics Server 2.0.
