DAM on Drupal 8

Drupal 8 DAM

The current solution delivered by Brainsum runs on Drupal 8, a versatile open-source content management system.

To the best of our knowledge, there are no existing open source Drupal 8 based DAM solutions / distributions available. Fortunately, Drupal's powerful feature-set allowed us to build one efficiently.

Parallel tagging and categorization hierarchies

Parallel tagging and categorization hierarchies

Indexing non-textual data, such as images and videos, is challenging for search engines. Instead, search engines rely heavily upon several types of metadata. The DAM system offers not only manually editable input fields to sort content, but also automatically discovers if the newly uploaded images contain such metainformation (IPTC standard) and display them to editors.

API integration

API integration

Via a standard JSON API any system can be integrated and use the DAM.

DAM client plugin module using this API is available for Drupal 8 on drupal.org.

Social media formats

The system offers cropped image variations for social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube.

 

Internal and external users, workflow

Allowing external graphic designers or agencies to upload media assets is a supported workflow. Multiple roles are present in the system to support the separation of responsibilities during the authoring workflow.

 

Statistics

Download statistics for the media assets via the API are collected to support the managers of the DAM on selecting new imagery.
