Extensis Announces Portfolio 7.0 for Windows

Extensis Inc. has announced immediate availability of its leading Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution, Portfolio 7 and Portfolio Server 7 for Windows (Macintosh versions will be available in May). Portfolio enables photographers, graphic artists and other individuals and workgroups - from those in small-to-medium sized organizations to multiple workgroups in global 2000 companies - to organize, retrieve, repurpose, and distribute digital files quickly. Portfolio Server also provides instant access to assets across the Internet and other wide area networks, opening the communication channel between distributed team members and partner networks, making asset management and collaboration easier and more efficient than ever before.

For greater efficiency and real-time collaboration, Portfolio's new AutoSync functionality allows users to assign tasks to Portfolio Server, enabling automatic synchronization. This feature also offloads file management and processing to Portfolio Server, boosting the system's overall workflow efficiency.

The most dramatic new addition to the Portfolio 7 Suite of products is NetPublish - an add-on module that automates the process of turning Portfolio catalogs into elegant, full-featured websites - with no knowledge of HTML or JavaScript required. With a simple, wizard-like interface, and using professional-quality templates, users can build sites that include built-in image search, collection baskets, low-resolution previews and batch-download capabilities. A NetPublish Server brings the power of server-side JavaScript-based scripting, customizable templates, and real-time database access to a web server. Advanced users can access and edit the underlying NetPublish templates to create fully customized.

Portfolio 7 is available at an estimated street price of $199.95US with a single NetPublish license. Additional NetPublish licenses can be purchased for an estimated street price of $199.95US (five concurrent web connections) or $999.95US (unlimited web connections). In addition, upgrades to Portfolio 7 are available for an estimated street price of $99.95US.
