Phase 1 Acquires Microsoft’s Expression Media

Yesterday, Microsoft announced that it had sold its Digital Asset Management solution, Expression Media to Phase 1, a digital camera capture and image manipulation software vendor.  Expression Media was formerly known as iView when acquired from iView-Multimedia in 2006.  iView was popular with photographers and there had recently been some concerns expressed about whether Microsoft was about to drop support for Expression Media – especially when it was removed from the Expression Studio package.  Other tools in the Expression range will still be retained and developed by Microsoft:
