                  File Sharing vs. Media Management - What Do I need?

                  File Sharing vs. Media Management - What Do I need?

                  I have often been asked why, in a world full of low-cost and free options to help businesses manage large amounts of content, anyone would choose to spend thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars on a media management system.

                  The answer is simple: More efficient media management means more efficient storytelling and ultimately results in a better connection with your audience.

                  File Sharing Tools Don't Manage Files Well

                  While it’s true that applications like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive all do handle some level of organization and sharing of files, when it comes to truly helping you manage your media files, they simply don’t cut it.

                  The next question I hear often is,
                  “What makes a media management solution better or different?”

                  Essentially, if you want something where you can simply drop and share your files, file sharing solutions are fine.
                  However, if you want something that makes your content easily discoverable and actionable, and essentially enables you to be creative with your media without unnecessary obstacles, then it probably makes sense to evaluate solutions which have been designed specifically for this purpose.

                  Comparing File Sharing vs. Media Management

                  Let’s look at a basic feature comparison between 2 traditional file-sharing solutions against iconik, the cloud video hub that is built for easy and cost-efficient media management.

                  Feature
                  Media Management
                  Dropbox
                  Google Drive
                  Shared access to a central repository of files
                  Ability to email links to files to others
                  Web Based
                  API
                  Permission Management
                  Previewing of video, image, and audio files
                  Search based on Name
                  Creation of custom metadata fields
                  Faceted searching based on custom fields
                  Custom metadata fields and values for each item
                  Review and Approve process for any file
                  Multiple editors collaborating on the same project
                  Proxy workflow for editorial processes
                  Customizable and automated actions with any file or group of files
                  Notifications to third party systems for system events or user actions
                  Creation of searchable time based metadata on video assets
                  Associate multiple file formats to a single record with a single set of metadata

                  This feature set is only the beginning of where a good media management system diverges from the traditional file sharing services. The choice to purchase a media management solution vs. staying with the traditional file sharing platforms should be based on asking questions like these:

                  • Is it cumbersome or difficult at times to search for and find files within our current system?
                  • Would it be very beneficial if we could search based on a strong set of metadata instead of just filenames?
                  • Would it be much more efficient if our approval processes included an in-depth tracking of approvals tied to our assets?
                  • Are there repetitive tasks that we have people doing on a regular basis that feel like they should be automated?
                  • Would it save you time if the system could automatically tag item based on the content?
                  • Is the way you collaborate on media less efficient than it could be?

                  If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then trying media management could be well worth it.

                  This brings up another common misconception. Many companies assume that huge amounts of time and money need to be invested to get setup. And who can blame them, with many traditional solutions that was, and still is, the case. The good news is that media management is rapidly changing. Modern solutions require, for instance, no on-premise servers and can actually be configured within a few hours.

                  In my experience, businesses that start working with a good media management solution never go back. That is because once you have experienced the powerful search abilities, the massive time savings of automated workflows, and automations for things like client file deliveries, transcription services, AI metadata tagging, and others, the idea of going back to a simple file sharing solution simply doesn’t make sense.

                              Cantemo Portal™ Revolutionising Education for INA

                              Cantemo

                              Changing the Media Asset Management paradigm

                              Cantemo Portal™ Revolutionising Education for INA

                              France’s National Audiovisual Institute (INA) has integrated Cantemo Portal™ as part of its training offering. The Media Asset Management solution is an important part of its new approach to audiovisual education.

                              INA is a major player, offering training for audiovisual and digital professionals. INA delivers a large catalogue of programmes both for students studying for a BTS (French technical diploma) or a Masters, as well as for professionals. The organisation trains more than 3,000 people every year.

                              The audiovisual industry is going through a period of rapid change. This includes the digitisation of media, democratisation of production tools with a multitude of different delivery formats and types. In this digital age, and with so many different formats, media companies have to adopt new models for managing media.

                              New Training Requirements

                              Media Asset Management solutions have become a necessity for the industry to tap into these new developments, whether that is during post-production, production, digital archiving, or delivery.

                              In this new paradigm, it has also become necessary for audiovisual training to evolve in order to respond to current market needs. INA has always worked to adapt its training programmes to be up-to-date. Therefore, it was looking for a modern and efficient Media Asset Management solution to enable it to cover all the aspects associated with this topic.

                              Christophe Martin de Montagu, Education Manager, audiovisual technology subsidiary, who is also responsible for academic partnerships at INA, explains: “INA needs to offer its students the opportunity to train using the latest Media Asset Management tools, which are being used in the professional world, in order to ensure it is delivering expert training on both the job and associated technology.”

                              Renewing the educational approach with Portal

                              Having reviewed its requirements and the available solutions, INA chose Cantemo Portal™ for its modularity and flexibility. This means Portal can evolve according to specific requirements and can be used in a range of different environments. That made it particularly adept to the very unique needs of INA. Portal was developed by the Swedish company, Cantemo, which is represented in France by IVORY.

                              New ambitions

                              CTM Solutions was tasked with the initial development phase, including integrating Portal into the existing infrastructure and training those responsible for education within INA. Using a virtualisation platform under Linux and housed within the INA infrastructure, offered not only great security but also ease of adaption. This means items and integrations can be removed and re-installed as needed.

                              Pierre Le Berrigaud, Commercial Director, CTM Solutions, added: "Portal is both flexible and intuitive, meaning we are able to use it to cover a number of different educational aspects. It is able to cater for users in different professions as well as being just as adept for developers as other users.”

                              Following integration and various test phases, Portal has been integrated into the Audiovisual Technology subsidiary of INA. Portal forms a core part of the training programme, with students able to familiarise themselves with Media Asset Management using Portal, which is integrated with an Avid storage environment.

                              Having witnesses initial success with this project, INA has decided to extend the use of Portal within the INA.

                              “We are particularly satisfied with the collaboration with CTM Solutions. Their expertise with Portal was extremely valuable, both for the advice given on the choice of technology, as well as their support once the solution was in place. We now intend to deploy Portal for a number of other of our training courses, for example those aimed at editors, journalists, archivists, and technicians, etc. We have acquired additional licences to enable us to expand our usage.” Christophe Martin de Montagu
