"The Web has been a major factor in the increased demand for digital
media management solutions such as Extensis Portfolio," said Frost &
Sullivan Information Technology Research Analyst John McCormick.
"Portfolio's ability to share, distribute and manage nearly any type
of digital media asset at the desktop - in a peer-to-peer,
client/server network, and now over the Internet - saves time by
placing the images, audio, video or text users need right at their
fingertips. This functionality has resulted in return on investment
ratios of 8:1 or even 14:1."
Portfolio: Scalable Digital Asset Management Portfolio 4.0 is a
completely scalable media asset management solution; this
functionality allows individuals, workgroups, or entire corporations
to manage digital assets through Portfolio. Users may purchase the

copies of Portfolio can share catalogs on a network. When workgroups
are ready to scale up to accommodate more users in a client/server
environment, they can purchase Portfolio Server, which comes with
five client seats and the Portfolio Web server plug-in.
Portfolio Web Edition allows users complete flexibility to provide
people with accessible, searchable information and media assets.
