Esko/MediaBeacon

Excerpt from the Esko/MediaBeacon: evaluation:

"What's to prevent someone from reading or writing every field in an asset's XMP using an Adobe (or other) XMP editor, or even a hex editor? Encryption. It turns out, MediaBeacon has the ability to encrypt metadata fields. In fact, a user with appropriate rights can select from among several encryption algorithms (using a drop-down menu), and apply them to asset metadata on a field-by-field basis (and yes, this means different fields can be encrypted with different strengths). So not only do you have access control over metadata at the field level, but you have XMP that can't be edited (or even deciphered) after a file leaves the system. ..."

Are MediaBeacon and North Plains still comparable?

Over two years ago, I wrote this piece about digital asset management vendors MediaBeacon and North Plains, saying they were almost always mentioned in the same sentence in DAM industry discussions. But that's changed. For better or worse, one vendor has radically grown its toolset and re-cast its approach to the market. The other has maintained the status quo, sticking to focus on one core DAM product and leadership team

Can you use your CMS or DAM on your mobile device?

I had made the case that mobile-enabled user interfaces for content management systems -- ones that allow you to pull up a content management system on a mobile device to maintain your web site, documents, or other digital assets -- was a very real and current way of managing content. My fellow panelist, however, thought no one was going to be bothered managing enterprise content on their mobile device

Can MediaBeacon keep up?

MediaBeacon is one of the bright and blinking stars of the Digital Asset Management world. Led by the ebullient and opinionated Jason Bright, the Minneapolis-based company has a much larger footprint on the market than the small size of the company would suggest. MediaBeacon's DAM tool is among the industry's more flexible and standards-based, and though largely focused on brand management scenarios, the company made extensive efforts to add video management features over the last 18 months
