NetXposure today announced Image Portal A/V for Mac OS X version 10.4 "Tiger" and Mac OS X Server version 10.4 "Tiger." This latest edition to the Image Portal family of Digital Asset Management (DAM) solutions was built specifically for Tiger and utilizes QuickTime imaging technology to deliver cutting-edge video conversion tools and automated podcasting.

"With the proliferation of digitized content everywhere from the enterprise corporation to the iPod user, many organizations are finding that their traditional DAM solutions fall short when it comes to effectively managing their growing libraries of digital video and audio clips," said Jason Wehling, NetXposure's VP of Technology. "We built Image Portal A/V to seamlessly integrate the use of rich media into a wide variety of workflows."

"Image Portal A/V is a great example of an application that has been developed to take advantage of the many innovations in Mac OS X Tiger," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We're delighted to see NetXposure leverage core Mac OS X technologies like QuickTime for media management and conversion, and the iTunes application to deliver audio and video content to iPods."

In addition to previewing both audio and video clips, Image Portal A/V's capabilities include keyframe display, the option to select thumbnails from keyframes, and the ability to transcode multiple formats including MOV, 3G, DV, AVI, MPEG-4, WAV and FLC. With built-in support for Podcasting of both audio and video files, assets can be designated for podcasting, then made available on RSS 2.0 feeds that can be used by iTunes and other podcast-enabled clients.

Image Portal A/V is an enterprise class, work-in-progress DAM system utilizing a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Other notable features include Web Services, WebDAV, LDAP support, versioning, auto-tasking, and statistics reporting.
