We’re getting excited for our upcoming 7.1 release of the Widen Media Collective in March!
Highlights of the version 7.1 release include:
- Asset-level analytics and popularity percent
- Stylized public collections
- Video clipping by timecode
- Updates to the mobile application
The new popularity percent on asset thumbnails in search results and the Asset Details page provides a quick visual indicator of an asset’s popularity relative the to all the assets in the library. The algorithm is based on views, orders, downloads and collections activity relative to other assets in the last 30 days. One click deeper on the Asset Details page, the analytics table displays real-time activity data for asset views, downloads, orders and collections.
Asset popularity and analytics can assist decision-makers with decisions surrounding the effectiveness of campaigns, events, promotions and product launches. Popularity and analytics can inform the planning, creation and communications around new assets (photoshoots, etc.) and the programs they are part of. Popularity is based on usage data and offers a nice compliment to the experience-based star ratings and administrator-controlled favorites.

Stylized Public Collections
We’re providing a new look to the collection share page to feel more like a gallery or brand portal. Three different templates are being offered to allow for various branding and customization options, including logo, header, colors and text. Collection URLs can be shared via email or embedded on a webpage. On/off settings allow you to make assets available for public download if desired. Collection-level analytics show views, downloads and shares.
The new public collections are great for presenting assets for public view and download for events, campaigns, product launches, promotions, media kits and brand identity packages. Backed by popular demand, customers can now extend portions of their digital asset library to public audiences without user accounts.

Video Clipping by Timecode
A new video clipping feature allows permissioned users to quickly edit longer video assets into shorter clips. Users click and drag a selection of the video to generate a clip. More savvy video editors can use keyboard shortcuts for more accurate frame selection. Clips can saved and downloaded instantly.

Updates to the Mobile Application
The mobile app for iOS devices and mobile site for Android users has been updated to allow users to select assets and share them with others. To help facilitate the sharing workflow, users can now create and manage contacts from the mobile app.
Additional updates in the 7.1 release include the ability to add new values to controlled vocabulary fields and categories when editing assets, new Assets Not Ordered queue on the administration dashboard, and minor UI updates with client colors, alerts and email notifications, and dashboard carousels for most ordered and recently added assets.
To see all the new features in action, join us for the Media Collective version 7.1 release webinar on Thursday, March 27, 2014 at 12:00 noon CST.
