iView upgrades MediaPro DAM software

UK-based iView Multimedia has announced MediaPro 3.1, an upgrade of its cross-platform digital asset management application. MediaPro is now a Universal application and runs natively on Intel-based Macs, as well as the Windows platform.

The upgrade features a new Notepad tool, designed to enable easier communication between creative professionals and their clients. The client drags and drops selected catalog items onto the Notepad palette, adds comments and then e-mails the Notepad file. This file then imports into the original catalog, using the client's preferences.

iView also introduced an improved Catalog Reader, the free utility that allows MediaPro users to distribute and share iView catalogs with anyone using a Windows or Macintosh machine. The addition of Light Table functionality enables Catalog Reader users to view and compare up to six images on-screen and mark items with labels and ratings to aid the image selection process.

iView Catalog Reader supports all 100-plus media file formats of MediaPro, offers slide show and search functionality, and supports Notepad.
