Canto has started to deliver the Workgroup and Single User Editions of the current version 5.5 of its Digital Asset Management Solution Cumulus. The presently available upgrades of the Workgroup and Single User Editions include: improved IPTC support, Palette View Mode and the integrated file format conversion functionality. Users working with the Workgroup Edition in cross platform environments benefit from the Server/Client Asset Transfer, as it reduces system requirements to the installed network software. Administrators also benefit from Remote Admin that allows administration of the Cumulus Server via any standard Internet browser. Version 5.5 offers new opportunities for users managing a large amount of image documents. Due to the improved IPTC support they can write modified metadata directly back into the original file. Also, previews are now generated much faster, especially TIFF documents. Customers using the Web Publisher Option at the same time are recommended to update it to the 5.0.6 version, also now available.
