DALIM SOFTWARE has released DALIM ES 5, which is digital asset and production tracking software for project management and collaboration. The company explains the software serves all participants of the production cycle, including brand owners, content creators, agencies, publishers, pre-media, printers and multichannel service providers.
The fifth edition of DALIM ES (enterprise solution) is aimed at a range of final output, including print, packaging, large format, web, e-book, and video, among others. “DALIM ES is an extremely complete enterprise solution for producers of marketing – or any other – content,” said Frédéric Sanuy, DALIM SOFTWARE, Solutions Architect, DAM Manager.
Sanuy explains, for the enterprise, there are really two implementations of digital asset management systems: “One is as a traditional asset management system that acts as a conventional file repository to archive and host content for syndication, or to hold content for future use and repurposing. The other – and this is the less common example – is a tactical work-in-progress system that makes it easy for companies to access and produce content.”
Sanuy states DALIM ES 5 is an example that offers both of these scenarios, as well as a media production and business management system to oversee and create content, particularly for the print production chain.
For the new DALIM ES 5, the company worked with Silicon Publishing to offer its plug-in for integration of DALIM ES 5 with Adobe Creative Cloud, offering digital rights management and check in-check out file sharing capability. This feature allows Adobe Creative Cloud users direct access to content within DALIM ES, along with metadata capture. As a result, users can work from within any of the Adobe Creative Suite applications to access content from DALIM ES and then move forward within DALIM ES to prepare the content for print, Web, or other media forms.
The DALIM ES DAM features can also automatically catalogue, enrich and share 3D augmented reality models. A new link to CHILI Publisher Link lets the operator edit a document directly inside ES. When a document is selected, CHILI Publisher is automatically launched and the document can be remotely edited. DALIM ES also has open connections to extensive content libraries such as IDSPictureDesk and Getty Images, sharing metadata. Images can be selected and published to DALIM ES for use in work in process.
