SeeFile Software, a developer of DAM (digital asset management) software for sharing media files, is announcing Release 4.6 of its product at a press conference at MacWorld Expo this week. SeeFile is exhibiting at MacWorld booth S-2612,South Hall.
Digital asset management systems, also known as Media Asset Management (MAM) systems, allow a range of collaborative workflows between creative professionals and their customers. While very powerful, these systems have traditionally been complex to implement. SeeFile solves this problem by providing pre-installed bundles of hardware and software that can be installed as easily as any networked computer. Because SeeFile 4.6’s DAM features allow improved communication between creative pros and their clients, there is usually a direct and measurable return on investment.
Starting February 2009, Seefile will release the first complete collaborative digital asset management solution as a web service. Users can start out trying the Web solution at very modest cost (under $50 per month) and graduate to the bundles at their own site when their needs require it.
SeeFile 4.6 leverages the unique capabilities of Apple’s Mac OSX software platform and new Macintosh hardware to deliver a simple, elegant tool for client communication. Administrative tools are included that simplify creation of user accounts and management of approval workflows. New features in Version 4.6 include a more intuitive user interface compatible with all modern web browsers, automated notifications of new or changed files, improved administrative control over users and groups, and extended support for a wide range of file types including PDFs, graphics files and videos.
SeeFile 4.6 is priced from $499 to $4,995, depending on number of user licenses. Complete bundled server systems including a Mac mini server with
1 terabyte of storage are available starting at $1,495. The hosted Web service will be available starting in February 2009 at several pricing tiers, starting at under $50 per month.
MacDailyNews Take: Oh, a Mac mini server with 1 terabyte of storage… Hey, wait a sec… A Mac mini server with 1 terabyte of storage!
MacDailyNews Note: Mac mini currently ships with an 80GB or 120GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard disk drive with an optional 160GB drive available.
