It doesn't pretend to be anything other than a really good digital media organiser.
(PRWEB) March 7, 2011
Daminion Software, a leading company specializing in media document management solutions for creative pros, has announced the 0.8 beta version of its Document Asset Management software. The Daminion 0.8 beta is a pre-release version that will be made available for public testing before Daminion Software releases the final version of the program. The new beta version is focused on image cataloging and media management. As a result, it reduces the time and cost of asset retrieval and content production for creative professionals.
Powerful search capabilities provide immediate access to assets of all types, including multimedia and other documents. Daminion is able to easily locate digital images, videos, and documents using a range of criteria, including categories, keywords, camera lens, color labels, rating and creation date. Content can be filtered withover 30 tags in combination with AND/OR operators.
At the heart of the program is its ability to store data inside of media files, including copyright information. All image descriptions are stored inside the relevant files as metadata. Whenever users copy, email, or publish their images, videos, or documents, all of the file information is transferred along with the files. This protects asset ownership and copyright. Without the use of metadata, the potential for lost assets is higher – if unmarked, assets may be invisible to searches and more vulnerable to misuse.
Another advantage of metadata is that it is the best way to exchange information across systems with different configurations using XMP. This eliminates the need to rely on a variety of different API versions. Instead, Daminion can store metadata in a range of formats, such as image, camera RAW, vector, video, audio, and PDF. Additionally, the database is automatically synchronized with information in EXIF, IPTC, XMP, and MWG formats.
Daminion allows users to export optimized files on demand with selected conversion rules in a single click. This file optimization feature is perfect for uploading content to Flickr or Facebook.
For an even more convenient user experience, Daminion can open multiple catalogs in separate tabs simultaneously in modern web browsers. Users can also work with Shared and Local catalogs in the same workspace.
Daminion is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, 2003 or 2008 Server, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. The program also requires at least 100MB of free disk space, a Pentium III with 1.0 GHz at the very minimum and at least 256MB of RAM. All currently supported versions of Daminion work on both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows.
