Interactive Media Manager (IMM) and SharePoint Server 2007

Interactive Media Manager is a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system built on top of SharePoint Server 2007. Some interesting features:

  • Media (MPG,WMV, ...) is not stored in a SharePoint list, the media asset storage is completely separate which allows you to store in a SAN or leverage 3d party solutions such as Aspera and Telestream through a web services layer
  • Provides an extensive metadata management layer which supports W3C Resource Description Language (RDF) as well as the Web Ontology Language (OWL)
  • Web parts to handle rich media such as IMM import web part, a media viewer web part with support for annotations/comments, Silverlight based Rough Cut editor and the Media Library
  • Adds extra IMM specific workflow activity blocks

For a great demo of the capabilities - check out IMM@NAB 2008 (Video)
