Search seems terrible - what seem like simple searches based on an item number or file name often don't provide expected results.

What do you like best?

The power the program has for attaching a versatile amount of metadata to images and documents. Its ability especially to provide thumbnails for large sized images such as RAW camera files is hard to find in other DAM software. The software also allows for long text entry that is fully searchable. For example we can enter the entire book entry text for a photos and have the ability to find it from the physical book very easily.

What do you dislike?

Some functionality is missing: the ability to search folders in the web client, searching by associations, visualization based searches. Associations cannot be added in bulk. Metadata cannot be bulk edited in searches. The drop-down interface to view associated items is clunky. The lack of keyboard shortcuts for metadata entry, for example: adding additional keyword lines without using the mouse. Inconsistent roll-over preview, often times an asset enters preview mode accidentally, or you cannot get the preview to pop-up. We also experience a complete lack of usability in previewing video and audio, though this may be an IT problem from us. Sometimes we have trouble uploading certain files for no apparent reason, small video files or files that are duplicates. A permissions function related to Copyright status would be cool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MediaBin was in place when I started, and I have little experience with other DAM systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MediaBin allows us to curate content to designers and other staff. IT allows us to share information about assets, provide a place to search assets, and a platform to download content.

What do you like best?

HP MediaBin User Interface is impressive and the layout is user friendly. You can easily navigate, search and find the assets. IDOL integration makes the search powerful such as searching text from videos is one of the great feature. Advanced search options are also available which are sufficient for basic searches.

MediaBin Web Service API is one of the best thing it offers. In couple of projects, we successfully completed application integration using MediaBin API (Java) to store assets of all types including images, videos, documents(.docx, .xlsx, .pdf, .pptx).

Liquid Office Integration for workflows and few OOTB ones available to copy and update accordingly.

Collections is a great addition where users can create their own meaningful group and add it to light box, which is a temporary location. These are great features and our users have found it very helpful.

What do you dislike?

From the MediaBin Web UI, users can't print out images with all of their Asset Details OOTB.

Login performance issues for the home page of MediaBin isn't acceptable. Home page makes 100+ requests to the server with couple of MB data in total size for all the requests which impacts performance.

Installation process is not correctly documented and you can end up spending more time for installs and integration especially Video Logger integration with MediaBin.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MediaBin offers Web Services API

Ease of Administration via Web Portal

Liquid Office Integration for workflows and few OOTB ones available to template by copying and updating.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Storage of large digital assets. Generating derivatives of assets to be stored on website. Integration of DAM with the web application to store assets and documents. Transcoding of large video files.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Management of digital assets (images and vidoes) for users in different regions. Our users are in different regions and we need a product that provide user based security to upload and download images and videos. We need a product that can easily be configured with internal LDAP system and doesn't need to create new users to access the system. Also we need a product that provide web services to integrate with different application. Mediabin provides web services that can be easily integrated with different application.

One of the best enterprise digital asset management tool for rich media assets . It is the only one product that easily integrates with HP Content Management System . This tool can integrate with portal solutions but requires fair amount of customization and knowledge of API's

The enterprise DAM implementation helped the client to structure the partner assets and providing the secure streamline process to upload / download assets on time . The work flow customization achieved the goal of approval process by standardizing the process . The partners compared the changes by selecting the versions .The metadata helped the client to identify the right assets. The search supported the client and partners to find the assets on time. The user / group security provided the best solutions. The transmission tasks helped the client and partners to download different type / size of the assets from single source.
