SAN FRANCISCO, California — 12 JUL 2011 — Canto partner Aimtec has released ZoomA for Canto Cumulus Sites and the Cumulus Web Client. ZoomA enables users to instantly and interactively zoom and pan images and other files without needing to download the file.

“Zooming and panning high-resolution images over the Web is remarkable,” said Canto CEO Ulrich Knocke. “But being able to do so instantly, without downloads—even at full-screen—means Web-based approvals and previews are no longer hindered by Internet bandwidth.”

Any file that Cumulus can preview can be “deep-zoomed” by ZoomA, making the add-on valuable for PDFs and other file formats too.

“It takes less time to open a preview in Cumulus Sites using ZoomA than it does to open that same file in Photoshop,” said Aimtec director Glenn Lawrence. “Plus, you don’t need Photoshop or any other program.”

ZoomA is priced at $2,900 / €2,900 with no per-user license costs. It is available from Modula4 (US and Germany), DataBasics (Australia), and other Canto partners worldwide. ZoomA requires no additional software. Aimtec is a Canto Certified Partner (Platinum).

Canto recently released Cumulus 8.5, which includes World Metadata, improved workflow, easier administration and more.
