Cantemo Portal 3.1 Tightens Control

The release of Cantemo Portal 3.1 features an increase in efficiency and better control for users.

The latest edition of Cantemo’s Media Asset Management (MAM) solution makes it easier to view, add, or alter media files held in the system. For example, entire folders can now be uploaded via the web upload tool and users can also edit metadata independently or in bulk. Application of metadata as a whole is improved, where Portal can allow certain metadata fields to be automatically inherited from a parent asset to all children assets.

It is even easier to edit and trim existing video without leaving Portal 3.1. An NLE is no longer required for this action, meaning Rough Cut Editor sequences can be directly rendered into new video files, complete with the correct metadata and transcode profile.

Archived media assets are now better managed, with four new object storages supported on Portal’s Archive Framework. This includes Amazon S3, BackBlaze B2, Spectra Logic BlackPearl, and Microsoft Azure Block Blob storage. The advantage being easier access to archived files within the framework and the ability to create custom rules for archived assets.

As a response to an increase in demand, Cantemo is also announcing the availability of its Windows port of the Cantemo Agent Software. As with the Agent for Mac, the Windows port is able to detect and leverage existing SAN links in order to allow for speedier transfer of files between Portal and local editing stations. Cantemo Agent Software is also able to act as a download manager, enabling single-click download of numerous assets from Portal and simplified editing of metadata.

“We’re delighted to announce the latest release of our unique Portal system”, commented Parham Azimi, CEO, Cantemo. “We are always investing in R&D to ensure that we’re identifying and addressing the needs and challenges of the market. Portal 3.1, therefore, features a significant number of enhancements which will greatly increase efficiency and ease of use for our customers.”
