Editors' reviewOrganize your mondo video library with this handy software tool. CATVids helps you create a database of DVDs, VHS tapes, and those great family-vacation films so you can keep track of what you have on hand and what you have on loan. At launch the program starts immediately with the main window and a detailed help file. CATVids is organized into five views: Explorer, Video, Contents, Loan, and Lookup. Each section can handle a ton of information about a film, such as movie title, cast, and rating, as well as what format the film is in and where you got it. Search options include actor or genre (whether it's a TV movie, animation, or drama). You can pull information from the Web and download it directly into the CATVids database. With DVDs, this operation is no harder than inserting a disc and pressing the Scan DVD button. If you want to take your catalog out of the house, you can upload it to the Notes section of your iPod (though we didn't test this feature). CATVids is a fine choice for movie fans who spend more time looking for DVDs than watching them.
CATVids is a powerful database program designed to help you catalog and manage your video collection. CATVids works with all types of media, including DVDs, VHS tapes, and laser discs. It will keep track of not only your pre-recorded material, but also home videos and anything else you have taped. Using CATVids you can quickly catalog your movies by downloading information from the internet. CATVids has a comprehensive set of data fields, enabling you to catalog a wide range of information: title, media format, release year, publisher, purchase date and price, current value, region, special features, production year, studio, rating, director, writer, cast and characters, synopsis, tape counter, recording speed, recording date, personal rating, keywords, and more. Other features include custom data fields, a loan module (to keep track of videos on loan), flexible searching, a report designer, more than 100 pre-defined report formats, a HTML generator, pop-up menus for quick feature access and navigation, and comprehensive context-sensitive on-line documentation available at the touch of a button.
