Streaming Media West - Integration between CDNs and Digital Asset Management Systems

by ,

Coming at'cha from Streaming Media West again. It has been a great conference and I have learned a great deal about one of the destinations of the video files that we store for our Digital Asset Management clients. While it seems that DAM has not been mentioned much, it is implied when talking about corporate content management and structure. CDNs are a target destination for web video, and many CDNs have APIs that allow for integration. As long as that continues, DAM systems will remain the central repository for all company branded assets, including video, then be able to push content to the CDNs as part of its delivery process. After searching for a video, a user will be able to view, order, download, or have authored to a DVD. And permissioned users will be able to push content to the CDN of choice. From a Widen standpoint, expect to see some cool changes to the way we present our videos on our main website. I have also been cooking up some other ideas of how to use video throughout the enterprise. The conference is now over, so it is back to Madison to figure out how internet video will continue to affect digital asset management workflow solutions in the future.
