Agari Mediaware, Inc. announced the introduction to the publishing industry of Media Star 2.2. Agari’s Media Star product suite allows the integration of publishing applications, non-intrusively, without making changes to existing applications or content. With it publishers can perform federated search, retrieval, and processing of content across geographically dispersed applications, link distributed content such as layouts, photos, artwork, pricing, rights, sales, and distribution data, and integrate systems acquired through mergers and acquisitions. The Agari product suite provides a solution for automating content value chain business processes (content creation, transformation, management, distribution, and consumption). Agari’s Enterprise Business Asset System connects content that is often dispersed across departments, business units, and partners so that it can be used across the enterprise. The metadata can be transformed between various formats on the fly, eliminating the need for centralized, common metadata schemes.
