DMOD Inc. (Burlington, Mass.), a provider of secure digital media workflow and distribution solutions, announced that it has released Version 3.0 of DMOD WorkSpace, an upgrade to its software-only solution that helps the entertainment industry prevent piracy during the production and distribution of new releases.
DMOD WorkSpace incorporates industry-leading encryption technology and persistent media-access controls that define an individual’s right to playback and/or export media. Version 3.0 features an enhanced architecture that allows project team members anytime/anywhere access via a standard Web browser. WorkSpace 3.0 is available as a client-server enterprise edition and a DMOD-hosted ASP service that can be rented on a month-to-month project basis.
Enhancements in DMOD WorkSpace 3.0 include: no desktop software downloads, installations or complicated security configurations; the new features are instantly available to all users via the browser interface; latest Web-enabling technologies such as Java and PHP, a scalable Web server database and integrated QuickTime support; and flexibility for customization to support co-branding or function-based usage, such as “Send Only” or “Receive Only” browser interfaces.
Pricing for DMOD WorkSpace Version 3.0 ASP averages $3,500 per month for 10 users, with no additional charges and unlimited 24×7 use. A typical DMOD WorkSpace Version 3.0 enterprise solution averages $60,000 per year for one server and 50 users. Both solutions come with an introductory offer of a 30-day money-back guarantee. Maintenance and support are additional. DMOD products support Microsoft Windows 2000/XP, Apple’s Mac OS X and Linux platforms.
