The release of Cantemo Portal 3.1 features an increase in efficiency and better control for users. The latest edition of Cantemo’s Media Asset Management (MAM) solution makes it easier to view add, or alter media files held in the system.

Entire folders can now be uploaded via the web upload tool and users can also edit metadata independently or in bulk. Application of metadata as a whole is improved, whereby Portal can allow certain metadata fields to be automatically inherited from a parent asset to all children assets. This can also be applied to collections of assets.

It is even easier to edit and trim existing video without leaving Portal 3.1. An NLE is no longer required for this action, meaning Rough Cut Editor sequences can be directly rendered into new video files, complete with the correct metadata and transcode profile.

Archived media assets are now better managed, with four new object storages supported on Portal’s Archive Framework. This includes Amazon S3, BackBlaze B2, Spectra Logic BlackPearl, and Microsoft Azure Block Blob storage. The advantage being easier access to archived files within the framework and the ability to create custom rules for archived assets.

Complex Active Directory setups are offered superior flexibility by the AD-integration App, enabling Portal customers to better control user access. Duplication is also no longer a problem for Portal 3.1, which examines the Storage Area Network for existing files when uploading assets.

As a response to an increase in demand, Cantemo® is also announcing the immediate availability of their Windows port of the Cantemo Agent Software. As with the Agent for Mac, the Windows port is able to detect and leverage existing SAN links in order to allow for speedier transfer of files between Portal and local editing stations. Cantemo Agent Software is also able to act as a download manager, enabling single-click download of numerous assets from Portal and simplified editing of metadata.

We’re delighted to announce the latest release of our unique Portal system. We are always investing in R&D to ensure that we’re identifying and addressing the needs and challenges of the market. Portal 3.1, therefore, features a significant number of enhancements which will greatly increase efficiency and ease of use for our customers.
