DAM News Round-Up – 28th March 2022
A selection of DAM and marketing technology related articles from around the web.
Author and Taxonomist Heather Hedden takes a light-hearted look at a number of taxonomy quotes and quips in this recent blog post. In the run up to the third edition of her book, The Accidental Taxonomist, Heather has put out a call for thoughtful and/or humorous quotes, and although she received more than required, she’s nonetheless published (and in true taxonomist fashion, categorised) them on her blog to bring a little wit into an otherwise dry topic.
Digital Asset Management software vendor Widen present a basic guide to their recently updated Asset Uploader – a feature to simplify the upload process, whether it’s for single or batch items. The feature allows users to select categories and metadata prior to upload, organise metadata fields into primary and secondary sections, and apply pre-filled category and metadata information using upload profiles. They expect to roll out the new functionality this spring.
Licensing, rights and royalties platform provider FADEL explore publishing rights models (PRM) in this recent blog post. Taking a fairly detailed approach, the article discusses a number of concepts within PRM, including its advantages and goals, along with a breakdown of the component parts and core elements to consider when building one. Rights transactions are also examined, broken down into ‘rights in’ and ‘rights out’. With numerous territories, and multiple levels of payment and compensation, rights management workflows can quickly become complex, so this article should prove useful for those just starting out in publishing rights.
Brand and Digital Asset Management solutions provider PhotoShelter have just announced their long-awaited Adobe Premier Pro integration. With some startling statistics about the growing popularity of video-based content and marketing, their new integration should allow content creators and marketers to tap into their video assets directly from the Adobe Premiere Pro application. An accompanying video is also available, providing a quick tutorial on how the integration can be used to create and edit video projects (although you might want to check your volume as the audio narration suffers from distortion).Share this Article:
