    TORONTO, April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- The Bulldog
 Group Inc. today announced the release of the latest version of its enterprise
 digital asset management solution, Bulldog Two.Seven.  Combining key new
 features with a suite of powerful new integrations, Bulldog Two.Seven enables
 customers to connect critical content production processes and optimize the
 value of their digital content.
     Digital distribution provides a multitude of new business-to-business,
 business-to-consumer, and e-commerce activities.  To profit in this new
 economy, organizations require solutions that effectively track and manage the
 volumes of digital assets that are integral to their business processes.
 Bulldog drives digital asset management solutions that are used by the world's
 most successful organizations to cut costs, enhance revenue, and increase
 their strategic advantage in the digital marketplace.
     Earlier releases of Bulldog software have focused on the continuous
 evolution of its core repository technology, now the strongest of its kind.
 The release of Bulldog Two.Seven marks the next phase of Bulldog's evolution
 delivering integrations with key production tools that are critical to the
 broadcast, entertainment, music, and interactive services industries.
 Building upon the performance and scalability of Bulldog Two.Six, Two.Seven
 allows content creators and distributors to save time and effort by enhancing
 collaboration and streamlining their production process.
     Bulldog's latest release offers integration capabilities with some of the
 world's leading technology vendors such as Virage, Convera, and Telestream.
 By providing video logging, video transcoding, intelligent text searching, and
 Quark document management, Bulldog Two.Seven secures Bulldog's place at the
 center of the digital content value chain.  Bulldog's new and improved API,
 makes video handling more robust and easier to manage with the re-introduction
 and integration with the Virage VideoLogger.
     From content creation, acquisition, management, assembly, and distribution
 through to final consumption, Bulldog offers value at each stage of the chain.
 By providing an enterprise solution that moves customers closer to total
 digital product assembly and distribution, Bulldog eliminates issues
 surrounding technology redundancies, proprietary systems, and silos of
 information that often occur as companies transition into the digital economy.
     "The core of Bulldog Two.Seven is our production-proven repository
 technology," says Chris Strachan, CEO of The Bulldog Group.  "Integration with
 production tools is ineffective without a solid infrastructure that bridges
 the components of the digital content production lifecycle.  By providing full
 integration support with Bulldog Two.Seven, we are moving our customers one
 step closer to the realization of a full digital process for assembling and
 distributing digital products."
     The release of Bulldog Two.Seven also sees the internationalization of
 Bulldog software and the translation of Bulldog's interface and documentation
 into Japanese.  Spanish, Italian, French, and German translations are
 scheduled to follow.  Internationalization enables Bulldog to penetrate new
 geographic markets and offer customers support in their own languages.
