Mediaboard ONE Manages All Media Files in One Place

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.
