DMOD Inc. announced that it has shipped Version 2.5 of its DMOD WorkSpace, a software solution that streamlines the media-production process and provides content owners and creators with tighter control over their digital assets using the Internet.
With Version 2.5, WorkSpace provides expanded media-format compatibility, including QuickTime 6.0, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, as well as several enhancements that make it easier for production teams to share, track and review digital media.
"DMOD WorkSpace will dramatically improve the way we interact with clients," said Bernie Laramie, president of MOSSync, a motion picture production firm located in Los Angeles. "We can send MPEG-4, MPEG-2 and QuickTime files securely over the open Internet and our clients can view those files in full-screen. The entire cycle of distributing, reviewing andapproving digital dailies will be significantly shorter." DMOD WorkSpace solutions are also in use at RCA Records, Sterling Sound and NBC's post-production staff, among other labels, studios and video-production firms.
Other features in 2.5 include: encrypted save-to-disk, which allows owners to select target recipients, assign media access permissions and save an encrypted media bundle for subsequent burning to CD/DVD; offline digital media review; browser-based access; digital media tracking to log and report media-distribution activities, including recipient, time of receipt and play and/or export; and group addressing and group permissions.
DMOD's WorkSpace Version 2.5 client/server solution is priced starting at $17,500 per year for one server and five client seats. Maintenance and support are additional. For more information, visit DMOD at www.dmod.com.
