iView Multimedia, maker of the MediaPro photo cataloging software that's been available on the Mac platform for several years, has today announced the release of the long-awaited Windows version, in addition to an updated Mac version.
Its ease of use, ability to catalog and preview a variety of both standard and RAW formats (complete with IPTC, EXIF and other metadata) and minimal-configuration interface have made MediaPro a longtime staple in our digital workflow.
MediaPro 2.5 for Mac and Windows is US$199 to purchase, and is a free upgrade for licensed users of v2.x of the software. The iView web site has complete upgrade details. Changes from v2.x for Mac include an improved user interface, better file and folder management and support for Adobe XMP-format metadata.
MediaPro 2.5 for Windows requires Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP. MediaPro 2.5 for Mac requires OS 9.1 (OS X is also supported). The freely distributable catalog viewer, iView Catalog Reader, has also been updated to v2.5. 21-day trial versions are available for download.
