April 7, 2007 in Software (E)

[] For immediate release
Software Company announces the release of version 2.0 of its cataloging programs for Mac OS X: Music Collector, Movie Collector and Book Collector. The most important new features are the addition of the new online databases, laser barcode scanner support and iPod integration.

Use the software to catalog your personal collection of DVDs, CDs or books automatically, with a minimum of typing needed. All relevant information is downloaded from several online databases. Starting with the new version 2.0, Music Collector and Movie Collector use the online databases to access detailed information on CDs and DVDs like cover art and movie plots. These databases are maintained using user submissions and are updated daily. The data quality and coverage is a unique feature of the products.

Laser barcode scanner support is also new in all three programs. Barcode scanning drastically reduces the time it takes to enter items. The cordless scanner has an on-board memory for 500 barcodes. This means you can take the scanner to your shelves instead of carrying your collection to the Mac. Just aim the scanner at the barcode and press the button to scan. After scanning, hook the scanner up to your Mac and all barcodes are searched online in order to download all relevant information to your own database.

The new iPod integration allows you to quickly export your collection to the Notes section of your iPod. You will always have your collection with you when shopping, avoiding buying duplicates. The iPod list enables you to browse your collection on the spot and only buy the items on your wish list.
