Extensis Portfolio Server 8.5 Offers Seamless Integration with Adobe
Creative Suite 3

New functionality means less time managing assets and multi-channel access
for workgroups.

Henry Stewart DAM Symposium, NEW YORK, N.Y., June 6, 2007 – Extensis, a
brand of Celartem Inc., today announced Portfolio Server 8.5, a significant
upgrade in its Portfolio Server digital asset management (DAM) product. The
Portfolio Server upgrade provides industrial-strength workflow features to
organize and exchange digital files utilizing visual catalogs and embedded
metadata. Portfolio Server is a multi-channel system that makes it fast and
easy to find and share valuable creative assets within the creative
workgroup, across the organization and externally with global partners. The
Portfolio 8.5 product family includes Portfolio Server, Portfolio Client,
Portfolio Express, Portfolio NetPublish and SQL Connect modules, as well as
a Single-User version of Portfolio.

Portfolio Server 8.5 includes new features to automate metadata-driven
organization, tracking, and distribution of digital assets. Additionally,
this release includes Portfolio Project Sync, designed to allow creative
users a seamless interface with familiar Adobe Creative Suite applications.
Creative users simultaneously benefit from Portfolio Server’s ability to
provide access to other users through the Portfolio Client, Portfolio
Express and websites created with Portfolio NetPublish, Portfolio Server
8.5 provides unique access points for both internal and external users.

“Portfolio Server 8.5 enhances the Adobe Creative Suite 3 by providing a
multi-channel solution to digital asset management” said Davin Kluttz,
Extensis Product Manager. “We know that creatives work most efficiently in
a familiar environment like Adobe CS3. This release of Portfolio Server 8.5
allows creatives to remain in their preferred environment while allowing
themselves and the rest of the organization to harness the power of the
Portfolio Server database.”

“Portfolio Server’s metadata-driven functionality extends the value of
Adobe CS3 as a powerful distribution and dynamic web publishing system,”
said Mike Wallen, senior product manager for Adobe’s Creative Solutions
Business Unit. “This level of integration achieved through the new Version
Cue CS3 SDK benefits users in almost any organization, simplifying complex
workflows through direct connectivity to DAM solutions.”

Portfolio Server 8.5 comes with Project Sync and includes several
enhancements, including improved XMP and file format support, greater
performance and stability, as well as additional features that help
automate management of complex metadata. Portfolio NetPublish 8.5 also
