<cms synchronize="1" />


When starting eRez you will see the message “Synchronizing CMS operations” logged as “info”.


Unfortunately this extra synchronization may limit the performance on systems with more than 2 CPUs. So our recommendation is to not enable this workaround unless your server is affected by this problem.


Things that might indicate that your server is affected by this problem are:


a)     Exceptions like java.awt.color.CMMException: General CMM error.

b)     Crashes within sun.awt.color.CMM.cmmColorConvert.

eRez Imaging Server 4.0 – New Features top 25


This is a list of some of the most important new features and changes in eRez version 4.0.


Dynamic Imaging

-          Parameterized text and graphics can now be rendered on top of images in real time.  This major new feature opens up endless possibilities for adding price tags and other up-to-date text and graphics to images on-the-fly.


-          3D Images can be published from individual source images (requires FSI Viewer 4).


-          Simple AJAX based HTML Viewer included.


Quality and Performance

-          Improved quality and performance when serving images to Flash and HTML Viewers.


-          Essential performance metrics are now collected continuously and can be viewed as graphs from the Management Console.


-          New Caching options for serving image data using native web servers.


Easy of use

-          The web interface has been updated with a new fresh look and supports working with a selections of files. The new interface takes advantage of the new dynamic imaging features to render text under the icons and dim inactive icons.


-          A selection of files can be emailed, downloaded, deleted, edited and published in a single operation.


-          Meta data can now be entered and automatically applied to images during uploads. The administrator can mark certain fields as mandatory; provide predefined values in dropdown menus and more.



-          The contents of the Download Manager can now be emailed as a simple link which will fetch a ZIP file directly from the eRez Server.


-          All emails can now be sent to multiple recipients.


-          An arbitrary selection of images can now be emailed.



-          Native Photoshop PSD files can now be used as mater images. Since PSD files only contain a single resolution, eRez will automatically create the missing resolutions and store them separately. Until this process has been completed the image may temporarily show up as a grey box.


-          Support for SVG, GIF, 24-bit PNG and more TIFF options including 1-bit, CCITT and packbits compression.


-          New optional (separately priced) plug-in providing support for AutoCAD DWG, DXF and DWF files.


-          Alternative filename extensions such as ".tiff" and ".jpeg".




-          An optional plug-in for automatically converting JPEG images to TIFF format when they are uploaded via FTP or other means is now included.


-          Both eRez and the Management console now use a highly flexible logging system with configurable detail levels and much more.


-          Many smaller improvements to the Management Console including direct entry of FSI license keys.
