Your audio files can be organized in any music library, but can they be easily managed and shared with your team? Digital asset management (DAM) makes it easy to collaborate on a large library of audio files with remote workers. You can even link different types of files that help support the music, like specific videos, album artwork and documents.
Organize Audio Files
Navigating through thousands of audio files is simplified with digital asset management. Music can be cataloged with relevant metadata like predetermined keywords and customized tags, and advanced search features makes it easy to narrow down your searches. Adding and editing relevant metadata, selecting predetermined keywords and creating custom tags make it easy for stakeholders to locate necessary audio files.
Link and Relate Important Files Together
Asset relations allow you to link important files together, like certain documents, videos and album art. With asset relations, you can link your files together in a way that makes sense for your organization. Document files with legal copyright information can be linked with audio files and music videos so that your team creates a database of useful information, instead of dealing with miscellaneous data scattered throughout folders on your computer.
Share and Distribute Your Music
Digital asset management makes it easy to share music files with outside collaborators. Your DAM system can be the central creative hub for musicians and managers to share audio files with those working on supporting artwork, videos and other creative files.
A DAM manager can define how files are distributed among collaborators and how those files are accessed. Creative directors and marketers can utilize the easy sharing of recordings, like live performances and video footage.
With a DAM system in place as your music file manager, you can control who has access to specific music files, organize a workflow to produce new content and control how others interact with your audio files and other digital assets. Audio files can be readily available to musicians and even the general public, with all of the digital rights management information in place to protect the work.
Content can also be shared through customizable portals where outside teams, clients, and collaborators can receive special permission to access specific assets. If you choose not to use portals, then you can create a link for users to view the shared file, or you can publish the content straight to social media or other storage services.
