San Ramon, CA, June 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Evolphin Software Inc. today announced that the next generation of its enterprise-class software solution, Zoom 5.0, has launched. Built from the ground up on Evolphin’s patent-pending RevDB (NoSQL) database architecture – optimized to handle massive structured and unstructured digital content – Zoom 5.0 vastly expands the features and functionality of its digital workplace management technology platform.
“Zoom 5.0 goes well beyond the limitations of traditional DAMs and MAMs, especially with respect to handling rich content like video and broadcast media assets,” noted Brian Ahearn, CEO of Evolphin Software. “We’re giving our customers a centralized, interactive content management solution that puts an end to the chaos of managing all their digital media assets, while helping to improve their creativity, collaboration, communications, and overall workflow. From enabling companies to centrally store, tag, search, distribute, and repurpose their digital content, to helping them accelerate the creation, collaboration, and production of their work-in-progress digital media assets, Zoom is digital asset management, redefined.”
The new Zoom 5.0 release includes many new and enhanced feature improvements, including:
·The First Truly Universal, Device-Independent Functionality: The Visual Asset Browser functionality of Zoom has been expanded from the desktop to now support usage over the Web as well as on mobile iOS and Android devices. Sharing the same common code base and design – versus the disjointed client experiences of other market offerings – users now have the ability to create, share, search, access and review digital and media assets via the Web, and search and preview via their iPad, iPhone or other smart devices. The completely redesigned experience and interface with customized views also makes it easier to work with all rich media assets and metadata.
· Greatly Expanded Faceted Search Functionality: Search more effectively using static and dynamic filters, Boolean search operators, metadata values, collection hierarchies, multiple search tabs, and saved/named/recent search history. Users can customize and truly personalize the fully integrated search/browse experience of the new search UI, and can save any search criteria or dynamic filters as a collection.
· Advanced Collection Architecture Support: Users can now create their own virtual hierarchy of collections and share these collections for review and comments from the desktop client or via the Web, setting up usage permissions and sharing options for specific users or roles. Collection asset lists are automatically updated, there’s a collection tab for easy viewing, plus bulk operations to apply metadata to all assets within a collection.
· Enhanced Multi-Page PDF Support: Collaboration through the use of annotations added to multi-page PDFs – functionality that’s already part of the Web-based annotation tool – is now a capability integrated into Zoom Visual Asset Browser, thereby eliminating the need to utilize any Adobe apps to view these assets.
· Improved Visual Compare: Zoom 5.0 now supports the review of different file-format assets, and high-resolution versions can be visually compared using this enhanced tool.
Zoom integrates feature-rich functionality – including data deduplication and replication, asset versioning, cutting-edge search, automated workflow, sophisticated analytics, enhanced visual compare, task-level metadata fields and values, automated server and client upgrades, and advanced archiving – into one evolutionary software solution. With Zoom 5.0, customers like Gilt.com are now able to gain complete control of their content, asset, and data management requirements.
"At Gilt.com, we're always looking for ways to offer our members an unparalleled shopping experience, and with dozens of new flash sales launching each day, delivering that experience requires expert management of thousands of digital assets being produced at our in-house studios," said Lauren Philson, Digital Asset Manager at Gilt. "Zoom has helped to enhance our efficiency and improve our ability to manage our assets in real time, so our teams can continue to collaborate together and create an outstanding online shopping experience every day.”
Zoom 5.0 sets the stage for Evolphin to continue the evolution of its digital media asset management solutions. “We’ll soon be offering a whole host of additional features and functionality,” added Rahul Bhargava, founder and CTO of Evolphin, “like full 3D support with previews of 3D assets and layer management, extended video support, new layering metadata management, and federated search. With each release we’ll continue to disrupt the content and asset management industry with solutions that continue to set us apart.”
