Best-in-class cloud-based media management solution adds video alongside images to help organizations cope with content deluge and embrace visual storytelling

Libris allows organizations to collect, store and distribute photos and videos to help them effectively communicate to their audience and securely preserve their history.

PhotoShelter, the world’s leading professional photography cloud service, today announced the latest release of its best-in-class cloud-based Libris media management service. With the introduction of video capabilities, Libris delivers a feature rich, easy to use and highly cost-effective Digital Asset Management solution for visual content. Libris enables content creators and marketers at companies of all sizes and across industries to improve their workflows and visual storytelling.

The smartphone and social media revolutions have created an exploding need for companies and institutions of all sizes to communicate visually. According to CMO Council, while 65 percent of senior marketing executives believe visual assets are core to how their brand story is communicated, only a scant 27 percent have the ability to aggregate, organize and manage these assets across marketing and non-marketing teams—including those outside of the organization. Organizations are trying to catch up, but need new tools like Libris to facilitate visual communication and manage the content apocalypse.

Libris Key VAM/DAM Features:

  •     Centralized hybrid storage for photo and video with effortless drag & drop multi-file upload
  •     Intuitive organization using collections, galleries and searchable metadata functionality
  •     Robust permission control management separating view and download access
  •     Simple distribution options to internal and external stakeholders with detailed access reporting
  •     Growing support for a variety of formats including large file sizes and lossless codecs with background transcoding into multiple resolutions

  •     Backed by 10 years of experience serving photography professionals and dedicated expert client support

“Libris allows organizations to collect, store and distribute photos and videos to help them effectively communicate to their audience and securely preserve their history,” said Andrew Fingerman, CEO of PhotoShelter. “Unlike traditional DAM offerings, Libris is focused on the specific needs and challenges of working with photos and videos.

Libris offers a solution for every employee that interacts with visual assets while fostering an ecosystem where creative professionals can continue to thrive. This new release brings us another step closer to our mission of helping the world’s organizations communicate visually.”
