  • Overview

    Media and digital content, such as images, audio, and video, have unique criteria for effective management. The Nuxeo Platform offers a foundation for common content management services, and a layer of functionality specific to digital assets including a variety of capture methods, catalog and index, process and review, render and deliver, and search and retrieve.

    A Customizable Digital Asset Management Application

    A DAM application is more than a ready-made collection of features: it processes business critical content, and must adapt to meet the requirements in any organization. Extensible and flexible, the Nuxeo Platform provides the tools to create advanced content models, internal and external workflows, custom access mechanisms, and custom UI. Nuxeo Studio provides the complete environment to help you adapt the Nuxeo Platform to your use case quickly and easily.

    A Single Repository for All of Your Content

    Too often, DAM initiatives are isolated within a single department and disconnected from the organization’s content management strategy. When digital and media content is viewed as a set of assets for the whole organization, with the appropriate access rights, processes become more efficient, transparent, and sustainable. A central repository for all of your content offers an inclusive, connected way of managing your assets across the enterprise.

  • Key Digital Asset Management Features

    Asset Capture and Batch Import

    Capture is handled by simple or batch upload of media assets with automated extraction of media metadata supporting IPTC and EXIF standards. Bulk tagging is an easy way to assign metadata to assets.

    Video Storyboarding

    On import, video storyboards are automatically created, with a series of thumbnails that segment the contents of a video file. Chapters can be viewed individually, and the video streaming feature offers instant viewing access.

    Access Rights

    Control sharing and access to assets with Access Control Lists (ACLs), authentication, user sources, and user groups. Protect the use of external media assets with granular access controls, and identify licensed content. You can also monitor and log asset usage with audit history.


    Annotate images and pictures assets directly from the browser, enabling online collaboration. Zoom in and zoom out on graphic items to comment on detailed views. You can navigate from annotation to annotation for quick comment review.

    Navigation, Search, Preview

    Users can navigate through asset lists, through metadata categories, apply category filters. Dynamic filtering on multiple facets, or metadata, is available, and navigation facets are fully configurable, and can be defined independently for a given asset type. Content can be viewed in thumbnail mode with zoom in / zoom out. Full text search includes annotations and captions.


    Easily create multiple renditions during the ingestion process and manage a range of resolutions, sizes, formats in consistent and connected way. Each rendition has its own unique URL for simple and accurate distribution and review.
