Pound Hill Software Inc. announced the Catalyst XMP Solution, an integrated set
of tools for Adobe’s eXtensible Metadata Platform (XMP). With Catalyst, creators and managers of graphic arts intellectual property can specify both the metadata embedded in graphic arts documents and the look-and-feel of the dialogs that collect the data. In addition to designing and defining these controls, enterprises can generate their own plug-ins for applications such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat and QuarkXPress to collect the data.
The Catalyst XMP Solution also includes a companion application called Metavue, a metadata browser and search tool. You can build customized metadata dialogs with properties and values unique to your workgroup in Catalyst and use these values and properties as search criteria in Metavue. Catalyst runs on Macintosh OS X. Catalyst plug-ins and XTensions run on Macintosh and Windows versions of the supported applications. Metavue runs on Macintosh and Windows operating systems. Catalyst, Metavue, and Catalyst Plug-ins and XTensions modules are priced at Enterprise, Workgroup, and Individual Freelancer levels. www.poundhill.com
