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.
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.
