Pound Hill Software Announces MetaGrove Suite 1.1 for MAC OS X

Pound Hill Software has announced MetaGrove Suite 1.1 for MAC OS X platforms, a new software suite of products that provide XMP metadata capabilities to users of Adobe Creative Suite CS2. The MetaGrove Suite toolset optimizes descriptive metadata to fuel digital workflows. Plug-ins on MAC OS X platforms are available for Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy. Building on Adobe's Extensible Metadata Platform open-source labeling technology, MetaGrove improves digital media workflows and allows repurposing of digital assets by making digital media files easier to describe and faster to find.

The MetaGrove Suite provides standardized cross-platform and cross-application metadata consistency, server-based support for controlled vocabularies, and the ability to automatically enforce compliance with corporate and departmental standards. MetaGrove Suite toolset facilitates source file repurposing and extends the lifecycle of digital assets by encouraging wide-spread acceptance and implementation of metadata as part of the day-to-day workflow. The end result is greater productivity and efficiency.

Applications within the MetaGrove Suite toolset are simply installed as a plug-in in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy and Acrobat. Once installed, schemas are instantly available as menu items within above named applications. In addition, all of the expanded XMP capabilities offered by the standard MetaGrove plug-in are available to the user.
