Extensis Launches Portfolio Server 10 Digital Asset Management Software

Tuesday July 12th, 2011 by Jim Kidwell

It’s been less than a year since the last release of Portfolio Server, but the development team at Extensis has been hard at work and today we’re introducing the latest version of our digital asset management software Portfolio Server 10!

Catalog Anything. Find Everything.

Portfolio Server has always been about quickly finding the right files, and in version 10 it’s all about finding any type of file from anywhere. Portfolio Server now has comprehensive support for video files and a new Tablet template for NetPublish that’s optimized for the iPad. We’ve also made the easiest DAM software available even easier to use with custom views in the web client, a new batch find feature for searching for a list of values, and a fast create PDF contact sheet option.

Better, Faster, Stronger

Cataloging thousands or millions of files can take some time, and if you add video to the mix processing takes even longer. That’s why one area we focused on was performance. Portfolio Server 10 processes files faster than ever before with an optimized media engine meaning you can catalog files, batch convert, rename, generate PDF contact sheets, and embed metadata in record time. And if you’re looking for seriously high-performance speed, check out the new NetMediaMAX which uses the computing power of multiple computers to form a media engine cluster (think “DAM supercomputer” built out of 2 or more inexpensive computers).

Admiration for Administration

Power users and IT pros will love the powerful yet simple administration options we’ve added. Support for Active Directory and Open Directory makes the system easier to administer in corporate environments. You can take greater control of the visual representation of files by applying custom thumbnails and preview images for any file. There’s also a new permission to allow Editor and Reader level users to download alternative formats via the presets menu while restricting access to high-res originals.
