—Updated GUI and many new features now available—
St. Louis, Missouri, June 6, 2007 — Studio Network Solutions (SNS), a premier provider of optimized audio/video shared storage products and developer of the only free iSCSI initiator for OS X, today announced the shipment of postmap to resellers worldwide.
Postmap is a digital asset management application for post-production workgroups. It offers a highly customizable platform of core features that can be easily tailored to the needs of creative teams of all sizes. Postmap helps users quickly locate files and folders stored on SAN, LAN, CD/DVD, FireWire and USB disks. The software offers workflow and enhanced metadata management features for classifying specific files and folders, sharing production notes, and organizing projects and media.
The latest release includes a collection of the features most frequently requested by postmap users. Such new features include a redesigned user interface for both Mac and Windows clients, a new preview dock for auditioning media clips, launch and reveal features for browsing or opening files, and an integrated volume browser for navigating the directories of offline storage.
“This new release of postmap includes enhancements that have been requested by a cross section of post-production creative teams,” commented Gary Holladay, President of Studio Network Solutions. “The input we receive from our user base provides us with valuable information for guiding the development of postmap. We’re pleased that we can now offer this updated version, and we’re already implementing even more new features that will be released as a no-cost upgrade later this summer.”
Updated postmap Features and Benefits
In addition to postmap’s core functions, which include Scan/Search, Enhanced Metadata and Workflow, the new version includes a redesigned interface for Mac/PC clients, and a collapsible Preview Dock for auditioning media clips directly within postmap – without the need to launch additional applications. New Launch and Reveal features allow users to select a file from a list of search results, launch an associated application, open the file, or reveal the file in the Mac Finder or Windows Explorer. Independent and collapsible File Info, Metadata and Workflow panels offer easier and more intuitive interaction with custom metadata and workflow information. Finally, an enhanced Volume Browser integrates more tightly within the client application, saving time for users who need to navigate the directory structure of volumes that are offline.
Postmap is designed to accommodate workgroups of all sizes. The software’s unique architecture allows its backend components, the postmap Server, Indexer and Database, to be installed on a single computer or distributed across multiple computers on any Ethernet network. This distributed architecture enables clients at any location to search the indexed contents of all scanned storage including SAN, file servers, and removable storage such as FireWire drives and DVDs.
