Dalim MAM : Media Asset Management

DALIM'S Media Asset Management module includes a variety of essential features through a suite of modules. MAM is available in a Classic and Enterprise edition which adds two additional modules.

Eliminate data duplication and save disk space by connecting ES to any file system.

Quickly search metadata across all assets

The HTML5-based Virtual View offers simple annotation tools for quick markup and approval of multi-page documents.

Revision Management

Revisions are typically managed based on file names. ES MAM provides a clear revision history and offers both automatic and manual version management. Team members can clearly see the number of active revisions, the current version, and the number of waiting revisions.

Multi-level Approval Workflow

Define roles for each team member in the approval process, from Reviewers who can’t impact page status to Approvers who can trigger status changes to Gate Keepers who can bypass and overrule others. Users get notifications only when their contributions are required, which ensures an efficient workflow.

Status Tracking

Files and metadata are constantly monitored for changes. Project stages, contributors, and status messages are updated on the fly. Steps are color-coded for a clear view of job progress.

Document Editing Made Easy

Control documents with check-in/check-out features that let users download and edit on their local systems and then upload the edited files for automatic updating in the system.

Deliver files to ES for preflighting via web browsers, hot folders, or FTP.

Smart folders in action

With Custom Job Tickets, any metadata relevant to your project can be collected, indexed, and forwarded to the appropriate user or connected system.

Easily and seamlessly integrate ES into your existing third-party applications, databases, and custom websites.

Upgrading to the Enterprise edition adds two more modules:

What's New in TWIST 7

  • Enhanced performance with up to four times the speed of the previous version.
  • Ability to monitor FTP servers and receive files via email, making it easier for printers and MSPs to receive customer files, along with the usual hot folder and WEBLINK support.
  • Extended metadata-handling abilities and new tools for the creation and conversion of a multitude of image files, including layer support and BigTIFF (>4GB), making it easier to handle large files for point of sale and sign applications.
  • Updated VisualCompare tool for more efficient quality control and greater support for adding printers’ marks on multi-page documents. For example, you can now compare an incoming file from a customer with the final, print-ready version, to see if any errors were introduced during production. Or, compare the plate output of two different RIP technologies to identify potential ripping errors. Even compare a single piece of artwork with the same file on a complete imposed form, and TWIST 7 will automatically identify the location of single reference file on a large form.
