has released version 2.5 of its DMOD WorkSpace for secure digital media collaboration and distribution.
DMOD Workspace lets you define your own network of digital content creators and maintain control over who sees what. It boasts real-time encryption technology and can be implemented as a peer-to-peer desktop solution or a centralized server gateway solution. Version 2.5 provides expanded media format compatibility, including support for QuickTime 6.0, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.
The update also offers full-screen playback and an Encrypted Save-To-Disk feature that allows owners to select target recipients, assign media access permissions, and save an encrypted media bundle for subsequent burning to CD/DVD. DMOD Workspace now has an offline digital media review that offers content recipients the choice of downloading secured media or disconnecting from the network, then reviewing media.
For Mac OS 9 users, Microsoft Internet Explorer can be used to upload unencrypted media to a gateway for secure distribution, assign media access permissions, view media and export media to your desktop. Digital media tracking in DMOD Workspace 2.5 can be done through a historical log that provides logging and reporting of media distribution activities, including recipient, time of receipt and play and/or export. The update also offers group addressing and group permissions; you can organize users into distribution groups and assign a common set of permissions.
The DMOD WorkSpace Version 2.5 client/server solution pricing starts at US$17,500 per year for one server and five client seats. Besides Mac OS 9.x, the software also runs on Mac OS X, Windows 2000/XP, Linux and Sun platforms.
