Canto announced “Internet Client Pro”. Internet Client Pro, part of the
Cumulus Enterprise Edition, is based on Cumulus Java Classes and JSP technology and replaces the “Internet Client” based on cgi technology. Internet Client Pro is especially designed for users who do not merely publish their assets but also intend to use them for marketing and generating business, as is the case in marketing departments, ad agencies, publishing houses, and PR
departments. Internet Client Pro is only compatible with the Cumulus Enterprise Edition. Internet Client Pro enables users to create dynamic web pages allowing visitors to search for images and other documents within Cumulus catalogs using a standard Web browser, then they can sort and select and place the items in a collection basket for download. According to their user rights visitors also can catalog new assets, assign assets to new categories, edit and update stored metadata or check out and check in assets for local processing without having to install additional software. Internet Client Pro is due to be available in the middle of February 2003 with an English, German, and French user interface on Mac OS X, Windows, Solaris and Linux platforms.
