Las Vegas, NV (May 2, 2006)–Studio Network Solutions (SNS) recently demonstrated Postmap–its latest software product for Mac OS X and Windows–at NAB 2006. The unique benefit of Postmap is that it can easily find, manage and catalog files located on a SAN, file server and removable storage such as FireWire drives and DVDs.
Postmap is designed to fill the void in the post-production industry that exists between simple OS-native search tools and highly complex digital asset management applications. With Postmap, users can immediately locate folders and files stored locally, remotely, offline or online. It also allows users to easily create and attach enhanced metadata to describe and classify specific files and folders. This custom tagged information can be used to reduce search times, share production notes and organize files to create a more efficient workflow process.
Postmap offers a flexible platform of utilities that can be easily tailored to the needs of creative workgroups of all sizes. The software offers a powerful suite of highly customizable features including Scan/Search, a sophisticated indexing and searching platform that offers the ability to schedule and selectively scan the contents of SANs, file servers, FireWire/USB disks, CDs and DVDs.
Postmap’s enhanced metadata capabilities provide the ability to easily build customized templates (digital forms) consisting of free text fields, date fields, keywords, hyperlinks, and so on that can then be used by all Postmap users to describe files and folders with structured information. Workflow extends the enhanced metadata feature in such a way that enables a company to easily define the steps in its workflow scenarios.
Postmap will be available for purchase through SNS resellers in July 2006. A trial version of Postmap will be available for download from the SNS web site. Licensing for the full version will be based on concurrent users at $429 each.
