Digital Asset Management--Lessons in Asset Architecture
Imation Publishing Software's Media Manager 1.0 for Apple Mac OS and Microsoft Windows NT is a scalable digital asset management tool that organizes text, image, sound, video, layout and other digitized media files. Media Manager catalogs and locates files from Mac OS and Windows workstations, while running on any ODBC-compliant database from the server platform.
Marcus Technology recently announced the development of iStore StorageLink, a solution for creating a seamless workflow from the tracking of online jobs to the migration to near-line tape or optical jukebox storage devices. The software migrates and retrieves files from tape and optical storage without causing any interruptions in the workflow structure.
iStore StorageLink software easily interfaces with North Plains' TeleScope and Imation's Media Manager, as well as Marcus Technology's WebDLMS product. The ability to submit a request for archive or restoring is done through the TeleScope or Media Manager client on Macintosh, or using Marcus Technology's WebDLMS product, which is a Web browser-based interface to TeleScope and Media Manager.
TeleScope 1.3, the latest offering from North Plains Systems, organizes, manages and archives images, graphics, sounds, movies, page layouts and Web files. TeleScope 1.3 has four major components: TeleScope Director, TeleScope Engine, TeleScope Quick- Drop and TeleScope Viewer.
North Plains also offers TeleScope.web, a seamless Web front end for TeleScope based on Marcus Technology's WebDLMS. TeleScope.web allows for file uploading and downloading from the Web.
