    Am setting up a digital asset management system for a talent management agency. Currently, the agency uses iPhoto to manage all of our talents' photographs but we find it rather limiting.

    Am looking for a digital asset management software that allows me to
    1. catalog, tag, and file talents' photographs and casting tapes.
    2. allows access of digital photos and videos over the network
    3. allows easy burning of photos, videos onto data CD's / DVD's (either built in burner or drag and drop into Toast Titanium.

    I've googled for "Digital Asset Management OS X" and came up with a search result that featured iView Media Pro.

    Does anybody have any experience with this program? Any suggestion on a better solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    Alfie

    i use ivmp3 to manage a 60,000+ image/video (very few vids) library... very fast and efficient...

    i like the fact that you can send out catalogs with a "reader"...

    my only complaints are it's lack of previewing support for eps files and it takes a bit of time to generate the thumbnails...

    upgrade looks bleak wtih the ms purchase...

    I'm not an iView Media Pro user but when I was reading your post, it was the program that immediately came to mind. Give it a shot.

    iView Media Pro is definitely one of the better ones out there but also try Adobe Bridge if you have the latest Creative Suite.

    Canto Cumulus is a gold standard in digital asset management software. Locally distributed by Ynzal.

    Filemaker Pro based databases are also very good at digital asset management. ButchM makes customized filemaker solutions including digital asset management databases.

    Maccess: Thanks SO much for posting that last bit of info.

    I've been looking for a Filemaker Pro guy for a while and you just reminded me - Butch Maceda! In fact, we were even blockmates in college!

    I am now evaluating Qpict. Works for me so far. And if I decide to register it's only $35.
