New functionality includes: Watch Folders, Transcode-on-Demand, Simplified & Traditional Chinese UI, LDAP Authentication, Multi-file Ingest, XML Batch Ingest, a UI that can be localized into any language, and support for My SQL 5.0, and the Streambox ACT-L3 Codec. The benefits provided by some of these enhancements include:

-Multi-file Ingest: Greatly speeds up the ingest process for all users
-XML Batch Ingest: Automates data migrations, speeding up, and improving the accuracy of the entire process
-Transcode-on-Demand: Realize new value from existing assets by creating a transcoded version on the fly
-Watch Folders and the metadata schema are described in more detail below:
V-Business 2.1 offers a completely customizable metadata schema, freeing end users to determine how and what metadata is used to describe digital assets. This enhancement also empowers enterprises with complete control over the metadata schema by supporting both stricter taxonomy models, any metadata standard, and also community-based Folksonomy models.
V-Business 2.1 also introduces a powerful new tool for automating the ingest and metadata assignment processes, V-Business “Watch Folders”. End Users simply drop their projects into the Watch Folder on their desktop screen, and these projects will be imported into V-Business on the fly. This feature gives users a way to instantly convert projects into sharable assets without logging onto V-Business. This is also an innovative way for sharing files between previously disconnected systems.
