Canto has announced
Cumulus Video Suite
1.0.1, an updated option for organizations that rely on Cumulus Enterprise products to manage digital assets. The suite — which costs $4,995 — enables Cumulus Enterprise users to manage and distribute digital video content.
Cumulus Video Suite creates records for each shot in a video, and can annotate that content with additional metadata. What’s more, the software supports Internet video streaming.
New to this release is support for Windows Media (WMV) files and new features for Mac OS X users, such as automatic shot detection based on cuts and effects.
Users can now create secure video repositories, catalog entire movies and individual shots, view previews and thumbnails, edit shot boundaries and add metadata both to video files or individual shots.
