With a variety of digital asset types spread across multiple sites, it’s difficult to keep control of the assets and share them across the organisation.
What is MediaStore?
MediaStore is an Oracle WebCenter application developed by Extended Content Solutions (ECS). MediaStore allows business users to collaborate internally and with external parties to produce and approve rich media for publication. It is a centrally-located repository for digital assets that provides easy ability to update, search, download, track and share images with employees, customers and suppliers. The application is based on Oracle WebCenter which provides underlying features such as security, version control and content conversion. MediaStore provides a rich user interface with advanced features to enable true Digital Asset Management (DAM) for the enterprise.

Think ‘OUT OF the BOX’ Integration….
Our MediaStore solution provides an easy to use and enhanced user interface for Oracle WebCenter Content’s Digital Asset Management (DAM) capabilities and extended WebCenter Content’s DAM functionality to ATG Commerce and WebCenter Site platforms. MediaStore will publish media either directly to the target repository or to a shared file system. This ensures that responsibility for page delivery remains with site publishing tool and that the assets can be used for recommendations and personalisation. The Integration with WebCenter Sites and ATG Commerce will also allow Merchandisers to manage their artwork and campaign material in a dedicated system while still making full use of the publishing platform capabilities.
We believe that MediaStore, together with the WebCenter platform, provides a true enterprise class Digital Asset Management solution
MediaStore also provides a set of full documented SOAP based web-services for full integration with other systems and provides services such as search, metadata retrieval and delivery of assets or their renditions. This can all be surrounded around a tight security model to ensure only trusted systems can access media.
Administrators are able to see a full history of what’s happened in MediaStore, from who has uploaded assets, to who has downloaded them.
Users can create and manage collections of media by creating Galleries. They can add any number of images, audio or video to a Gallery, and choose to share it with specific users, teams, or keep it private so it’s just visible to them.
Quickly perform batch operations, by selecting assets in the search results, and using the bulk action buttons. This lets users upload, approve, update and download multiple assets in one operation.
Upload video of virtually any format, and have it automatically converted into any number of different formats and stored in MediaStore.
Set common metadata fields for a group of images and upload in batches. Use the simple drag-and-drop feature to upload more than one image
Ensure the quality of images meets your organisation’s standards by restricting upload access and enabling workflow. Set mandatory image detail requirements to ensure metadata is recorded.
Images are automatically rendered into predefined formats, sizes and colours. Define metadata fields for digital assets to tag content and search efficiency.
View search results with in a variety of formats from thumbnail only to minimal metadata and full list view. The thumbnail slider lets users adjust the size of thumbnails to suit their own monitor resolution.
MediaStore provides a multilingual interface, out of the box it is supplied with English, French and Flemish but additional languages can be supported via language files.
Create collaboration areas where internal staff and third party suppliers can work together to create new artwork and assets.
Users can quickly download zip files of assets, choosing which rendition of each asset they want in the zip.
Images can be cropped using free-form or predefined aspect ratios. The crop output can replace the current image or be checked in as a new item. Relationships are maintained between images so you can always identify the original item.
Ensure each asset has owner consent before allowing its usage in the organisation. Receive automatic notification of any asset nearing the end of its copyright agreement.
