Another DAM week has flowed under the proverbial bridge, and, in recent digital asset management news, Razuna updates, Active Storage gets more active, Primestream adds an add-on, and Hollywood exclaims for asset management.

New Razuna Platform Is Out

Razuna ApS has announced that the new edition of its open source digital asset management platform has been released. Version 1.5 includes a slew of new enhancements, and can be downloaded for local use, run on a dedicated cloud server, or utilized via Razuna’s hosted service.

Active Storage Gets More Active About Europe

Active Storage is expanding its presence across Europe. The Torrance, California-based maker of the mMedia Platform for media storage solutions has hired Thomas Filioud as Regional Sales Manager for Europe. A French national, Filioud will be based out of Active Storage’s London office.

Primestream Releases New FORK Add-On

Primestream has unveiled the latest incarnation of its FORK XChange Suite 1.5. The add-on to the FORT software platform provides broadcasters with instant access via the Web to their FORK production server, from any Windows or Apple device.

The FORK platform offers management and automation of broadcasting workflows, can create subclips and markers, and features a variety of ways for media producers to manage their content on FORK servers.

Version 1.5 allows subclips to be created remotely through the new Assemble module, and then delivered to remote sites. There’s also a new upload manager, so content can be uploaded via a browser, as well as new multitrack audio features and extended metadata functionalities.

“Content creation and management are no longer centrally located activities,” Claudio Lisman, CEO and Primestream|B4M president, said in a statement. An understatement, that is.

“We created Xchange Suite so that producers and editors can tap into their content from anywhere,” he added.

Hollywood Goes Analytical!

So many platforms, so little time. In order to help provide some thoughts about solutions, the Hollywood IT Society is presenting a Digital Marketing and Analytics Summit, in cooperation with Variety Magazine, on September 28 at the W Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles.

Featured at the Summit will be technologists, researchers and marketers addressing asset management, IT, sales and marketing in the age of A Zillion Ways to Watch Media. In particular, the conference will focus on how to decide what is actually valuable consumer information, from the tons of data available from users of interactive entertainment and social media.

One of the keynotes will be “Digital Asset Management -- The Nexus for Digital Marketing!” (No other keynote or presentation in the Summit’s list of featured topics has an exclamation point!)
