German developer InterServices New Media has released Mediaboard ONE, an application for managing all image and video files in one spot. The workgroup-ready software creates thumbnails for all of them -- four thumbnails showing different frames are created for each movie -- and enables users to add comments, keywords, license information and more. Mediaboard ONE automatically pulls all EXIF and other data from the files, and its Autofill feature completes commonly-used words as theyire typed.
The software also includes image and movie viewers, with the latter offering full-screen mode and the ability to display 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios. Users can also define their own automated workflows, such as importing images from iPhoto or burning files to a CD. Mediaboard ONEis database can be stored locally or on a network server; its core is SQL-based and it supports Apache Derby as a local database and MySQL and PostgreSQL as the network server.
Licenses are US$39.95 per client, with five- or ten-user workgroup servers available for $495 or $925, respectively. Mac OS X v10.3 and 10MB free hard drive space are required. Some features require Mac OS X v10.4.
