Industry: Digital Media
Web gallery and media management software adds significant features in major update to help organizations manage and share photos, videos, audio files and documents.
Boulder, CO (PRUnderground) June 2nd, 2016
Tech Info Systems (www.techinfosystems.com), a provider of open source and commercial Digital Asset Management and Web Gallery software, is pleased to announce Gallery Server 4.0. This release adds significant features, including a new ribbon toolbar, HTML and image editors, metadata file writing, performance increases and more.
Gallery Server is a self-hosted, web based media management solution that enables businesses, organizations and individuals to display and manage any media file in an online gallery. First introduced in 2005, Gallery Server is widely popular. It is the number one gallery in the Microsoft Web Application Gallery, with nearly 200,000 downloads.
Version 4.0 represents a leap forward in capabilities. There is a new high resolution media viewer, support for Windows authentication, native Nikon NEF and Canon CR2 file support, and a new admin page for monitoring the video and audio transcoding status. These add to the already impressive features such as customizable UI, album and user level security, synchronization with existing files, and mobile device support.
“Gallery Server unlocks the media files hidden on your hard drive or file server and makes them accessible from any browser on any device,” said Roger Martin, founder and CEO of Tech Info Systems. “Unlike most DAM offerings, Gallery Server provides a feature-rich open source version at no cost. Even the high end Enterprise Ultimate edition is a fraction of the cost of most competitors.”
Equally at home managing millions of assets in a large organization or providing an online gallery for a local sports team, church, or club, Gallery Server has an intuitive, uncluttered interface that is easy to use yet deceptively powerful. “The new metadata writing support, which pushes changes like tags, titles and captions back into the metadata of the original media file, means once an edit is made, you never have to do it again, even if you move on to other DAM software,” commented Roger Martin.
Gallery Server is available in several editions, from the open source, GPL-licensed Gallery Server Free to the commercial Home & Nonprofit, Enterprise, and Enterprise Ultimate editions.
