Southpaw Technology has released version 2.5 of Tactic
(, its digital
asset management system for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux systems. The
upgrade indexes and tracks each component of every project to create
a streamlined workflow with an automated central repository of assets.

Created by users from the 3D and animation industry, Tactic 2.5
combines a server with a drag ‘n drop web client to create a scalable
DAM system. It creates a central library of every media asset as a
byproduct of the production process.

Tactic 2.5 sells for a suggested retail price of US$895 per user.
This includes all software upgrades and technical support for the
first year. Ongoing upgrades and support may be purchased for $185
per user, per year. Tactic is licensed per “active user” — meaning a
studio can assign as many user accounts as they need; only those that
are set as active by the Tactic administrator require a license.
