Cumulus Digital Asset Management System to incorporate VideoManager 6 for efficient video management
BERLIN, August 28, 2012 – Canto, maker of Canto Cumulus digital asset management (DAM) software, today announced a new technology partnership with MovingIMAGE24, a specialist in video cloud solutions. The cooperatively developed solution combines efficient management of digital content with easy worldwide distribution of video files on different channels, platforms and devices.
Cumulus is an established digital asset management system that allows users to organize, find and share any type of digital files including videos. Cumulus hands over video files in the background to VideoManager 6, MovingIMAGE24's cloud-based solution for managing, editing and publishing video files. VideoManager 6 will then convert the video files into the required formats and provides links and metadata required for download and embedding. Users of the data and video management solution can use these directly via the Cumulus interface. Additionally, VideoManager 6 allows users to edit video files online, define chapters and initial screens, import them into social networks and stream on any device.
Ulrich Knocke, Canto ceo, commented: "I am extremely impressed by the possibilities this partnership offers to customers. VideoManager 6 perfectly complements the Cumulus video functionalities. Customers can continue to manage all their media files in one system, plus they are now able to use video files in different formats, to provide links for download in any desired format, stream video files cloud-based via a player integrated in VideoManager 6, and embed them into other systems and platforms."
Dr. Rainer Zugehör, MovingIMAGE24 ceo, added: "The integration of VideoManager 6 into Cumulus combines the benefits of both systems. Users can continue to centrally manage their source videos in the DAM system on their servers while benefiting from our cloud solution for the distribution of videos. Thanks to this interface, working with video files will become much easier for Cumulus users, saving them valuable time."
