YaWah among the first to launch professional image server for Mac OS X Panther

With the launch of eRez Imaging Server version 2.5 it has become much easier to establish your own image library on the internet. With the new drag & drop installer it only takes few seconds to install the software under Mac OS X and it has become much easier to take advantage of the Tomcat Java application server which comes preinstalled with Mac OS X server.

"Mac OS X support has always had a high priority at YaWah", says Kristian Ottosen, president at YaWah. "The unique combination of user friendliness and a solid UNIX platform makes Mac OS X a very attractive server alternative for many of our customers. At the same time, the new Xserve G5 from Apple seems ideal for real-time image processing.

"Apple has since 1984 been the leading supplier of graphical workstations and with software like YaWah’s eRez Imaging Server on Apple’s Xserve and Xserve RAID we fulfil our customers need to also be the preferred server platform" says Sales director Kenneth Nielsen, Apple Denmark. “eRez Imaging server is one of the first professional image servers for Mac OS X and has for a long time been used with great success at for instance Bruun Rasmussen Auction house in Denmark".
