Exclusive Collaboration Tools Allow Users to Communicate, Coordinate, and Share Sets of Assets Without Leaving CatDV’s Web and Desktop UIs

WARWICK, U.K. — April 19, 2017 — Square Box Systems today introduced CatDV Social, a powerful set of communication and collaboration tools for the company’s industry-leading CatDV media asset management (MAM) system. Now available in both CatDV’s Web 2.2 Advanced and desktop user interfaces, CatDV Social is an integrated message application that places real-time chat and group discussions at users’ fingertips.

CatDV Social appears as a Skype-like panel within the CatDV user interfaces that enables users to send messages to other users and also to publish “channels” for sharing of information about projects and collections of CatDV assets. CatDV Social also includes an exclusive, policy-based “push notification” system that notifies users instantly of incoming messages.

Messages within CatDV Social may include attachments, allowing users to send one or more clips to support ad-hoc workflows. For instance, a user can send a set of clips along with a message such as “Can you review these clips and send any comments along to Fred?”

“At Square Box Systems, we’re committed to making the access, sharing, and reuse of media assets as transparent and easy as possible for our users — and CatDV Social is the latest example,” said Dave Clack, CEO, Square Box Systems. “No other MAM provider offers this degree of team collaboration and communication, making the sharing of assets as easy as physically walking down the hall to have a chat with a co-worker.”
