Cantemo Upgrades MAM Portal

Cantemo is showing a pre-release preview of the latest version of Portal, its media management platform. The upgrades are intended to improve the simplicity of file transfers and downloads, and offer better control over user access.

The latest version, Portal 4.0, also features upgrades to Elasticsearch, Python and Django. This includes API support for Elasticsearch aggregations, making searching and indexing even the largest of content libraries simple, quick and accurate.

Improvements to Cantemo Agent are deemed central to the latest version of Portal, focusing on Single Sign-On (SSO) support in the Agent, accelerated file transfer using Aspera, and increased feature parity between Agent for Windows and Mac. Agent is also now capable of limiting bandwidth consumption, as well as the number of concurrent transfers. There is now better interaction between the Agent and the main Portal 4.0 system which results in live reporting of transfer-job statuses. Users will also be able to retry uploads and downloads in the case of errors, and pause, resume or cancel transfers that are in-progress.

“IBC is one of the biggest shows in our calendar so we’re really pleased that we’ll be able to offer preview demos of Portal 4.0 at this year’s show,” commented the company's Martin Fellbrink. “The newest updates are a huge improvement to the efficiency of management workflows, especially our Cantemo Agent updates. The update doesn’t just make it easier to transfer files, it makes it quicker and more cost-effective thanks to the Agent’s ability to limit consumption of bandwidth during transfers.”

In addition, Portal 4.0 introduces better control and more granular access-management for administrators. New roles have been added which means administrators can more finely manage which users, or groups of users, have access to certain content or features.
