Woodwing announces new DAM options

Woodwing Software, has introduced a new module, Enterprise Analytics, for its multi-channel publishing system Enterprise. It’s a cloud-based system that provides authorized users up-to-date information about the progress of their production processes.

It includes two different reports: the Progress Report shows which stories are already finished and which stories editors and designers are still working on; the Object Status Report gives an overview of the status of all objects related to a story. Thus users can see if some files are delayed – for example, if an article is stuck in review or a video is kept in post-production. The different states are displayed via customisable colour codes.

Woodwing also announced v5 of its digital asset management solution Elvis DAM. The server architecture has been completely rewritten for faster management of up to one billion assets. There are new Web client features, a further extended API, as well as deeper integration with popular desktop applications.

Bastiaan Born, Product Manager DAM Software, explained: “While Elvis always relied on powerful search engine technology instead of a database approach and already serves customers with up to 20 million assets, trends show that we need to be ready for the next step.”

Thus Elvis DAM 5 uses a new clustering architecture to distribute the main server over multiple machines. There’s a new ElasticSearch feature that allows combined parallel search scans, resulting in significantly decreased search times. The new version will become available later this year.

In a separate announcement, CoDesCo IT Consulting, a German developer of IT solutions for publishing and communications, introduced its Smart Translation Solution for WoodWing’s Enterprise multi-channel publishing system and its Content Station editorial management solution.

This makes it easier to handle multilingual publishing processes. It allows the localization of documents any kind directly from within Content Station, supports the XLIFF format and is compatible with all major translation memory systems including SDL Trados.
