Digital Storage Manager for Intranet Archive Management

Production-environment archiving solution

Big Picture

Digital Storage Manager 1.0, from MetaCommunications, is an intranet search and archive-management software solution designed specifically for production environments. The system works in conjunction with standard desktop publishing tools and the Mac OS Finder to allow users to:

  • Quickly and easily find files"?users can specify simple or complex files, by tags or actual text content (full-size page previews also are available).
  • Automatically capture metadata, eliminating manual cataloging (including Adobe XMP and text content from Mac OS X and Windows 2002/2003).
  • Archive by individual user or by a central librarian/archivist.

The Production Pack contains a set of plugins for OS X Finder, Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and QuarkXPress; these provide the ability to lookup and edit metadata directly from within these applications. MSRP: $995, for the basic system.
