Video Management Software explained

Why do I need Video Management software?

Video content is a valuable asset. To capitalise on its value, the storing, moving, editing and repurposing of your files and clips - in any format - must be a smooth and accessible process.

Video Management software – a form of ‘Digital Asset Management’ (DAM) or ‘Media Asset Management’ (MAM) – is designed to make light work of handling your video files.

There are many reasons to look for software to manage your video assets. You might want to:

  • Ingest, import or upload multiple files fast and automatically.
  • Find, send and share large video files easily.
  • Edit your clips simply, without a technical editing suite.
  • Avoid duplication and keep master video files intact.
  • Keep credits, maps, permissions, captions, and notes attached to your video assets.
  • Track the use and history of your clips.

Software for Video Management is designed to take unnecessary waiting and reworking out of your workflow – putting creativity and innovation back on the table.
