WoodWing Assets: Media Asset Management für schnelles Finden von Dateien

WoodWing Assets

WoodWing Assets combines a convenient user interface with outstanding performance. Familiar concepts, such as a search function similar to Google, full screen preview and drag-and-drop simplify management and research. The high-performance search engine by WoodWing Assets delivers results in a flash – no matter how large the files are.

WoodWing Assets facilitates creative cooperation. Since all files are stored in one place, the location and timing of asset use can be checked at any time. As an open platform with unlimited scalability, WoodWing Assets fits into the technology landscape of any project. 

Efficient creation processes

Layouts and images are directly edited in Adobe InDesign through WoodWing Assets. All file versions can be tracked which simplifies cooperation.

Upload files

WoodWing Assets features a user-friendly drag-and-drop function that facilitates fast uploads of digital assets. That saves a lot of time. Assets automatically extracts file metadata contained in one of the Assets folders. In addition, miniature and preview images of the content are created. This avoids lengthy and repetitive steps and facilitates fast file uploads and organisation. 

Integration with Adobe Creative Cloud

Integrating WoodWing Assets with Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) facilitates straightforward editing of Photoshop and InDesign files. A Photoshop file is selected directly in WoodWing Assets. Changes are implemented without having to save them locally or switching between tabs. The InDesign workflow is similar. Assets always ensures that changes are saved and the images are linked. 

Automated versioning

WoodWIng Assets automatically versions changes to assets or designs. Each time a file is closed in InDesign or an image is edited, WoodWing Assets creates and saves a new version. 

Easy cooperation

With the one-clock share function, teams can work together on an asset. The release function allows other persons to evaluate the design and comment. Publication times are noticeably reduced. The creation of an upload link allows external designers and photographers to save their files in a central location. 

Easy and sophisticated file administration

Thanks to the central storage, all content is organised in a single location. Allocation of privileges ensures that only the right persons have access to certain files.

Meaningful metadata and effective tagging

When adding files in WoodWing Assets, associated information (metadata) is automatically uploaded at the same time. Technical information (file name, file size, file format, date of creation) are extracted during this process. In addition, keywords can be selected from a taxonomy and metadata can be added manually. 

Controlling privileges

Privileges can be individually configured to define who can see, download or edit digital content. Thanks to integrated watermarks, usage authorisations can be identified. 

Finding and sharing data fast

WoodWing Assets makes it easy to organise assets by folders, metadata and collections. Fast, web-enabled previews and miniatures are used by WoodWing Assets to instantly show digital files and simplify the search for them. The Assets brand portal facilitates convenient file transfer to local branches, businesses or colleagues. The required content can be downloaded at any time and from anywhere as needed.

Adjusting the architecture to the requirements

The system uses the same search technology as Wikipedia. An unlimited number of files and range of file types can be processed and indexed, search results are displayed within seconds, and the system is can be scaled up as desired. Thanks to the open API, the functional spectrum of WoodWing Assets can be extended as required.
