NetXposure hones image portal X for Mac OS X, newest version expands digital asset management capabilities via deeper Adobe technology integrations

SAN FRANCISCO – January 7, 2004-

NetXposure, the leader in focused Web applications, today launched at Macworld the enhanced edition of Image Portal X. Image Portal X, the truly Web-based digital asset management (DAM) solution smartly centralizes, processes and leverages companies’ digital assets. The latest Image Portal X version further streamlines asset usage with major functionality additions from InCaddy, the Adobe InDesign software plug-in, to enterprise-wide integration capabilities.

Running on the Mac OS X platform, Image Portal X does more than just centrally archive images. The solution is built on NetXposure’ s Exogen Application Framework, designed to support complex Web-based content management applications requiring the utmost flexibility. Considering, when compared to common static repositories, Image Portal X makes asset usage a comprehensive yet simple enough task manageable by trained designers or non-technical users.

Image Portal X previously streamlined business operations with batch processing, extensive metadata tagging, and access control. The solution offers an enhanced feature set that opens doors to creative, new uses for a centralized DAM system. LDAP support, for example, is available to link a company’ s contact database with Image Portal’ s permission-based access control features. Automatically assigning user access-levels as each individual is added to the database eliminates the need for an administrator to manually engage Image Portal users. Also new to Image Portal X is the Web Services ability, enabling the corporate DAM solution to communicate with external computer systems to speed the sharing of critical information.

For Adobe InDesign software users, Image Portal X supports InCaddy-the smart plug-in linking directly to Image Portal’ s repository and processing engine from the InDesign menu bar. Designer’ s productivity simply increases, as they no longer need to download and import images outside of the publishing software.

“Image Portal X’ s ability to morph with a company’ s growth and demands challenges everything the public believes is possible regarding cost-effective digital asset management solutions,” said Jason Wehling, NetXposure’ s VP of Technology. “NetXposure historically travels that path of unprecedented achievements through independent accomplishments as well as joint successes with market leaders like Adobe. And, we intend to continue.”

The intricate weaving of each new Image Portal X capability composes a powerful technological resource that no company housing assets should be without. The strong Exogen backbone enables the solution to sit effectively at the center of a company’ s digital asset universe. In turn, Image Portal X’ s ROI increases with every new application deployed around it. Image Portal X’ s current version also includes advanced search capabilities that allow for multiple keyword queries as well as in-text searches.

NetXposure rounds out Image Portal Mac OS X-friendly product family with Hexafoo

SAN FRANCISCO – January 6, 2004-

NetXposure, the leader in focused Web applications, launched at Macworld the Image Portal Family’ s newest member, Hexafoo. Exhibiting the same Web application flexibility as Image Portal X, Hexafoo specifically answers for companies currently considering or using static workgroup solutions the need to store, organize and distribute valuable digital assets. Now customers no longer have to sacrifice functionality or limit user numbers to receive competitively priced core digital asset management (DAM) benefits. What’ s more, workgroup LAN connections, additional hardware or individual software clients are not required. Any employee, customer or partner with a Web browser can access and easily distribute assets through Hexafoo’ s next-generation user interface.

Too often, businesses choose basic workgroup DAM products to meet general corporate management needs. However, typically those workgroup products subject companies to user fees and stifle distribution potential by locking the archive inside an internal company network. Other than centralizing assets and enabling a select few employees to process and distribute the files, little is gained in terms of streamlining business operations. In fact, more work could be created, as most likely a gatekeeper would have to be designated to parcel and manage images.

NetXposure believes successful DAM comes when anyone who could possibly need assets can access and manipulate them by themselves. The Web application developer also believes that not every company needs every DAM capability. Rather than force on a company unwanted features for limited users, NetXposure prefers to offer only the necessary features to every employee who might use them, while leaving the door open for module additions as company needs evolve. Hence, no scalability issues, no extra features, no wasted money.

A DAM solution should automate company workflow: This is another NetXposure mantra. Choosing a DAM product for basic use should not mean that the product itself is basic. Of course, a company may decide to utilize its DAM solution solely as a centralized repository. However, should a company seek a greater ROI, integration with other business operations to speed workflow and automate administrative tasks must be available. Hexafoo, built on NetXposure’ s flexible Web application framework, is capable of linking to other technologies such as Adobe’ s InDesign software to allow for easier asset distribution. Or, for fast delivery of multiple files, batch loading is available.

“Hexafoo is the right choice for companies seeking an entry-level DAM solution that is accessible by anyone, anywhere,” stated Devin Donnelly, President of NetXposure.

Hexafoo’s feature benefits include:

  • Organization of Digital Assets: Customizable categories storing images with detailed metadata centralize all corporate assets. For more accurate retrieval, a powerful, advanced search engine that queries in-file text as well as metadata sources files.
  • Access Control: Companies can automatically control brand image and collateral disbursement through permission-based access assigned to individuals or user groups.
  • Modular Expansion: As companies grow, so can the Hexafoo DAM solution. As greater functionality is demanded, modules can be added to the core solution. Current modules available include Web Services, LDAP Support and the InCaddy plug-in. Designed as a Web application, Hexafoo upgrades quickly and easily as new modules are presented.
  • Compatibility: Hexafoo leverages pre-existing hi-tech investments by remaining flexible enough to incorporate commonly used technologies. For example, Hexafoo can integrate with common databases, eliminating the need for companies to deploy new, proprietary systems.
  • InCaddy for Adobe InDesign Software: For Adobe publishing software users, Hexafoo offers the InCaddy plug-in. InCaddy immediately connects to the central repository, enabling quick asset importing and exporting from within the software.

    What is a ‘Hexafoo’? Dating back to Medieval Europe, a hexafoo is a colorful artistic rendering of symbolic images designed to depict and protect its bearer’ s goods…much like NetXposure’ s Hexafoo safeguards corporate images used for branding and production.

    Hexafoo is currently available for Mac OS X. For more information, please send an email to sales (at) netx (dot) net or call 503.499.4342.
