The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media

Managing Video Assets from Production to Distribution

Wednesday September 13, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Whether in advertising, brand engagement on social platforms, training, do-it-yourself or internal corporate communications, we have all seen the studies that show video truly wins the crown for engagement.

Of course, this brings its own challenges:

  • An increase in the complexity of managing assets
  • The need to produce more of the assets, ever faster, at higher quality, in multiple formats and versions for an always increasing number of outlets. All with suitable metadata.
  • The challenges of storage, curation, archiving and reuse
  • And metadata and rights management must keep up and match every requirement

Those are the challenges. This tutorial is about how best to meet them.

We’ll cover:

  • The Essential Foundations of Video Management
  • Mastering "the Information" of Video
  • The Video Production Cycle - Operational Effectiveness
  • Advanced Video Management and Governance
