Pound Hill Adds Adobe Creative Suite & Panther to Catalyst

Pound Hill Software announced Catalyst 1.1, the latest version of the company’s tool for creating plug-ins to capture and embed metadata in content creation applications. With Catalyst, creators and managers of graphic arts intellectual property can specify both the metadata embedded in 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. Version 1.1 of Catalyst extends compatibility to Macintosh OS X version 10.3.x, QuarkXPress version 6.x, and to all Adobe Creative Suite applications. Catalyst, Metavue (a metadata viewer and search application), and Catalyst Plug-ins all utilize Adobe’s Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP). Pound Hill also announced today the release of MetaLab, a free tool for defining and adding a new XMP metadata panel to the File Info dialogs in Adobe Creative Suite applications. Catalyst, Metavue, and Catalyst Plug-ins and XTensions modules are priced at site license and custom a la carte configurations. Evaluation kits are available.
