MerlinOne DAM gets “Thumbs-Up” for Its New MerlinX Release

Quincy, MA, April 21, 2014 – MerlinOne announces its new game changing web client has been released to customers. MerlinOne SaaS customers World Vision and Make-A-Wish® America are among the first to upgrade to the new software. MerlinOne will be demonstrating their new MerlinX web client, versioning, and enhanced video editing features at the Henry Stewart DAM show in New York, May 1-2.

John Leckie, executive producer at World Vision digital media centre commented,” You folks rock! what a lot of work that you have done with MerlinX and it’s a thumbs up from me.”

Alex Cabal, Creative Services Systems Specialist at Make-A-Wish® America, first impression is MerlinX “looks very modern and really friendly and very appealing, users are eager to use Merlin.”

MerlinX’s web client is based on a modular, plug-in architecture. Every toolbar button, palette, content view, and administration panel is a separate plug-in, so adding and removing workflow tools is easy.  As part of the interface, users may customize their experience by rearranging palette items, open the items they most use, and hide items they do not need. The three-column default design may be collapsed to two columns or even a single column if desired. And palettes may be put anywhere.

MerlinOne also adds versioning to MerlinX, with a simple easy-to-use check in/out and replace tool.  Users may be restricted to only the most recent version or, if workflow requires, previous versions, but will be unable to download them without the right privileges. Versioning is flexible and easy.

Video handling just got easier. You can mark and export video clips with MerlinX-no need for a special non-linear editor. Merlin video tools make it easy to search video by annotations or even the spoken word. Find the video fast, then use Merlin to export a clip or frame to your website or social media.
