July 6, 2005 – Hamburg, Germany. InterServices New Media today announced
the immediate availability of Mediaboard ONE 1.1 – the media cataloging and
asset management application built for Mac OS X.
Mediaboard ONE enables creative professionals and power users alike to
easily manage their images and movies. It keeps track of the locations of
your media files (whether they are on a CD/DVD, on your internal disc or on
a network server), catalogs and organizes them and provides easy ways to
find them fast when you need them.
Mediaboard ONE creates intelligent thumbnails for every image or movie
cataloged. You can add comments, keywords, license and model/property
release information. The new Autofill feature makes this task fast and easy
to use. Useful data, like EXIF and IPTC information, is automatically
extracted from the media files and added to the catalog.

Photographer or Media Asset Manager on screen. Mediaboard ONE additionally
includes an enhanced image and movie viewer to display your files. The
movie viewer even works in full-screen mode and supports different display
modes (16:9, 4:3, full screen-zoom). The context-menu additionally shows
