The background of DAM

The Digital Asset Management system provides markedly useful visual materials manually curated by a team at the Marketing department. This way employees seeking any kind of stock imagery, motion pictures, brand guidelines to spice up their documents can now easily browse the internal catalog of such multimedia files.


Access your assets directly from the admin UI your CMS. Connect all of your websites, or other apps (new portals, intranet, webshop etc.). DAM browser client available currently for Drupal, can be easily developed for any other platform.

Media Library

The Media Library is the central web UI of the DAM, where all of the assets are available, filterable, selectable.

What is a DAM?

Digital asset management (DAM) is system for organizing, managing and distributing digital assets. Digital assets can include photos, music, videos, documents and other multimedia content.

A DAM software also manages the rights and permissions of the stored assets.

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

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

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.
