Canto has announced the return of its single-user digital asset management (DAM) system. Based on Cumulus 8 technologies, Canto Single User offers state-of-the-art file management for professionals and smaller organizations that don’t need the network (multiuser) capabilities of high-end technology.
Available for Mac and Windows, Canto Single User catalogs and manages any type of digital file — video, audio, photos, graphics and office documents. XMP, IPTC and EXIF metadata are supported, and users can add any additional metadata they need.
File-finding options include category browsing, keyword searching, complex query construction, file relations and more. Watermarking, a built-in image editor, and file processing options enable users to manage document masters and create on-the-fly variants that are copyright-protected, format or color converted and resized.
Designed for small media operations, Canto Single User can manage files stored on local drives, CDs/DVDs, networked computers or network attached storage appliances. Users can continue to search cataloged DVDs or other media, even when they’re offline.
