CDWinder, one of the leading media cataloging applications for the Windows platform, receives a further update today. CDWinder now creates previews for video files, has its own built-in 3D-GeoTagger that also geotags azimuth and tilt, and offers a new Locr-Upload feature. CDWinder also has an improved Find function, up to 20% faster than before, and remembers the last query you used, and the last path you cataloged. And there are a lot more features and enhancements.

"The cataloging of video thumbnails is a major step forward, a feature many of our customers have been asking about. And with the built-in 3D-geotagger we can now also create those amazing geotags with azimuth and tilt that we've been able to catalog and rave about for some time now." said Andreas Becherer, chief developer of the CDWinder team. But the new release includes even more features and enhancements, such as the Locr Upload feature and increased Find performance.

CDWinder for Windows works on Windows 2000 or higher and is tested on Vista and the upcoming Windows 7. There is also a version for Macintosh called CDFinder, available as Universal Binary for Power PC and Intel-Macs. The demo version of CDWinder is unlimited in time, but restricted to 25 catalogues. A single user license is 29 Euro / 39 USD. Multiple licenses for business or network use are available, and priced depending on the number of clients and features required.
