Media & Entertainment

Media and Entertainment companies are experiencing multiple disruptive forces of digitalization, multi-platform content consumption, social media integration and the generation, management and analysis of an immense amount of data and content. This trend is providing companies with the opportunity to adopt newer and more integrated technologies and solutions. But how can they achieve this within their shrinking IT budgets? In an evolving environment such as this, the one element that continues to remain unchanged is the importance of the relationship of the company with its customer.

As a leading technology consulting firm, IDS understands the importance of this relationship, and all our service offerings and solutions for digital media companies are designed to help you strengthen your relationship with your consumer.

While enabled users to upload hundreds of files to a standard web browser, our optimized media browser application.

Automatic Metadata tagging and extraction

Control Metadata reading and writing as a natural part of the ingest process. IDS DAM solution provides a simple way to include metadata with every file. Optionally, you can configure a user’s permissions to ensure that metadata is entered for any file delivered to IDS DAM Solution. When a user attempts to upload a file that doesn’t contain the required metadata, IDS DAM Solution will request that the metadata is provided. IDS SAM Solution supports batch metadata tagging for hundreds of files as part of the upload process. Alternatively, existing metadata, set on a job folder can be automatically associated to any asset that is made part of that job.

Unmatched ingestion speeds

Fast, predictive and accurate data ingestion is key for a Digital Asset Management System. IDS DAM Solution has been benchmarked to ingest an over 25,000 assets per hour (this includes the data record creation, preview generation and metadata extraction)

Instant preview generation and metadata extraction

IDS DAM solution simultaneously manages your high resolution digital assets whilst generating automatic quick color accurate previews for virtually any professional still image, document or video file as well as extracting any embedded XMP metadata associated with the ingested files. IDS DAM Solution features outstanding preview generation. Any WEB preview generated by IDS DAM Solution is true WYSIWYG (What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get). This includes most Adobe files including Illustrator, most Photoshop formats and PDFs (PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3, PDF/X-4).

Natural file relationships stay. Without any user interaction

IDS DAM Solution dynamically offers a visual presentation of all files in which an asset is currently being used, and all assets within a particular document, while providing easy access for quick edits or modifications. All of this is done automatically as part of the ingestion process. No manual user interaction, such as linking files, is required.
