With the explosion of digital assets and media over the past decade, companies are struggling to keep them organized and accessible while ensuring version control. Locating and distributing files has become a major time and productivity killer.
Fortunately, Extensis Portfolio™ makes digital asset management (DAM) affordable for companies of all sizes. Originally released in October 2014, Portfolio transformed the user experience with suggested, guided search capabilities, millisecond results, a sleek new user interface and elegant thumbnail views. It’s used by hundreds of Fortune 5000 companies. And it’s just been updated to make it better than ever.
Portfolio has added full compatibility with Apple® OS X® Yosemite (v10.10) and advanced reporting options. It’s also faster than ever, with new features that increase the efficiency of importing, copying, updating, converting and exporting assets.

With the introduction of Final Cut Pro X, Apple has discontinued its Final Cut Server media asset management software . If you’re now looking for a Final Cut Server alternative, we suggest taking a look at our digital asset management software – Portfolio Server.
In Portfolio Server 10, you can instantly playback video and audio in both our Web Client and native Mac and Windows Desktop Clients. We’ve enhanced our metadata support with the ability to embed XMP metadata to video files, and added the ability to transcode video in our NetMediaMAX solution pack. If you need to migrate assets from an existing Final Cut Server, just point Portfolio Server to an existing FCSvr device for automatic cataloging and synchronization of media files.
If you’re a Final Cut Server user, we’d love to hear from you in the comments section. What do you plan do to with your Final Cut Server implementation? If you are looking for a replacement, what features and capabilities are important to you in a media asset management system?
Extensis Updates Font Management Applications to Support Mac OS X Lion, Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 and QuarkXPress 9
July 28th, 2011 by Jim Kidwell
Today we released updates to our font managers to support Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and Adobe Creative Suite 5.5. In addition a new XTension for QuarkXPress 9 was added to the Universal Type Client.
The updates are available as a FREE downloads for Suitcase Fusion 3 and Universal Type Server 3 on both Macintosh and Windows operating systems.
This release updates Suitcase Fusion 3 for compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion). Universal Type Server and the Universal Type Client were previously compatible with Lion
Adobe Creative Suite auto-activation plug-ins for all applications now include:
- Adobe InDesign CS3, CS4, CS5, and CS5.5
- Adobe Illustrator CS3, CS4, CS5, CS5.1 (shipping with CS5.5)
- Adobe Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.1 (shipping with CS5.5)
Universal Type Server also includes additional plug-ins to support Adobe InCopy CS4, CS5 and CS5.5, as well as a new XTension for QuarkXPress 9
Download the updates from the Extensis website:
If you already have Suitcase Fusion 3, you can also get the version through Check for Updates feature of Suitcase Fusion 3:
- Choose Suitcase Fusion 3 > Check for Updates (Mac OS X)
- Choose Tools > Check for Updates (Windows)
Today Apple released the latest and greatest version of their operating system, Mac OS X Lion (10.7). Now that the cat’s out of the bag, here’s the scoop on Lion compatibility with Extensis products:
We plan to release a Lion compatibility update for Suitcase Fusion 3 within the next few weeks.
Universal Type Server
Universal Type Server 3 is compatible with Lion, but requires the separate installation of Java runtime because Lion no longer ships with Java pre-installed. We plan to release a Lion compatibility update for Universal Type Client 3 within the next few weeks.
The Web Client is Lion compatible, and viewing NetPublish sites from a web browser running under Lion is also compatible. We plan to release a Lion compatibility update for the Desktop Client (v10) this summer followed by a Lion compatibility update for Portfolio Server 10, NetPublish (v10) and the NetMediaMAX External Media Engine (v10) in autumn.
Portfolio Standalone (v8.5) users should download the v8.5.6 update.
With the initial update to Mac OS X 10.6.7 several bugs were introduced that provided issues with how some applications handled OpenType fonts.
Apple recently released an update to fix these issues:
- Address an issue in which some OpenType fonts don’t display correctly in certain applications
- Resolve issues printing from Preview
- Address an issue with PDF files not opening in third-party PDF viewing applications
- Resolve invalid font errors when printing to PostScript printers
