Cantemo, leading software developer for the rich media industry, and Vidispine, innovators in media asset management software, continue their development of the successful out-of-the-box digital asset management solution, Cantemo Portal™ DAM.
Cantemo Portal™ was released early this year as a highly customizable and adaptable media asset management solution commercially designed for small broadcasters, workgroups, post houses, and any other SME with a need to manage media content. By establishing an eco-system of system integrators and resellers around Portal, the solution has been expanded, customized, and deployed globally in multiple sectors, including post-production, educational, and energy.
“We believe in providing a solid solution to all core media asset management problems which are generic and cross-market,” said Parham Azimi, CEO and Co-Founder at Cantemo. “But Cantemo Portal™ is so much more than that. With its Apps and Themes infrastructure, including a comprehensive RESTful API and a set of open-standard libraries, we are providing a wide-ranging toolset for our partners to expand and shape the solution to fit exactly to their end-customers’ needs.”
"Cantemo share our mission of creating next generations DAM systems by engaging a strong eco-system of smart companies and solutions," said Erik Åhlin, CEO and Co-Founder at Vidispine. "Beyond this, Cantemo Portal™ provides a solid base framework and an intuitive user interface which is increasingly an important differentiating factor between various DAM solutions."
The eco-system around Portal is constantly growing with partners who recognize the potential of the solution. The list includes pioneers from the Apple Final Cut Server community who have jumped on the Cantemo train. Of particular note is André Aulich who recently joined the ecosystem.
“Cantemo Portal™ is simply the most flexible and easy-to-use DAM available today. It supports all kinds of NLE systems like FCP 7, FCP X and Adobe Premiere CS6 and can be easily extended through third-party Apps to cover your workflow in every little detail,” said André Aulich, Founder of moosystems. “For instance, in moofs we have extended Portal by adding real-time file change detection on Xsan volumes, Final Cut Server migration tools and PresSTORE archive integration to archive items from-disk-to-disk-to-tape.”
Other available Apps for Cantemo Portal™ include web-based and frame-accurate Rough Cut Editor and Annotation Tool and integration with market leading NLE’s.
The complete Portal solution including both Cantemo Apps and some of the partner Apps are showcased at IBC 2012, booth 7.J15d in hall 7.
