Dramatically change your organizational efficiency with a simple digital asset management solution. Portfolio Server™ saves the average user 2.5 hours a week by centralizing—and then visualizing— extensive libraries for quick search and sharing. Using Portfolio Server means no more time wasted searching the network, browsing folders, consulting coworkers, and loading discs.
This is DAM done right.
DAM doesn’t have to be painful. You’ll have Portfolio Server set up within a matter of days – not weeks or months (or even years!) - and you’ll start seeing time-savings almost immediately. Avoid hours of tagging and data entry work using Portfolio Server’s automatic metadata capabilities. Add files to Portfolio Server simply by placing them into a folder, or have Portfolio watch an existing folder.
Features & Benefits
Find Files Fast
An asset is hardly an asset if you can’t locate it. Portfolio Server includes web-based and desktop client applications that make finding your files a snap. Find rich media files quickly and efficiently by searching a single location that immediately provides visual results. Preview images and play video files without downloading or opening another application—no additional desktop software required.
Drag and Drop into Any Application
Drag and drop files from the Desktop Client into Mac® or Windows® applications or layouts, and quickly edit “live” files directly from the file server.
Organize and Collaborate
Organize files into galleries and folders, track important file details, and create custom fields suited to your workflow. Create and share Galleries and Smart Galleries (think Smart Playlist) for organization and collaboration. Use AutoSync to monitor folders on your file server and keep your catalog in sync with new files and changes.
Track Rights Management and Important File Details
Use the included standards-based fields or easily create your own custom metadata fields to track information about or relating to your assets. Manage keywords, descriptions, and other metadata in batch, or item by item, to enable future location and use of assets. Some examples of custom metadata include:
- Product information or SKUs
- Usage information, such as license restrictions
- Copyright and credit info
- Customer or client names associated with an asset
- Expiration dates
Edit Portfolio Server Metadata in Other Apps
Portfolio Server can read metadata from files you upload, and can write metadata to files that you share, allowing you to synchronize information with other metadata-aware applications, including:
- Adobe® Creative Suite ®
- Adobe Lightroom®
- Adobe Acrobat®
- Apple® Aperture
- Microsoft® Office™
Quickly get the right file format for the job.
Portfolio Server’s media engine saves time by doing processing work for you. Media processing and conversions take place on Portfolio Server without slowing down your workstation. Add commonly used conversion settings to the batch convert presets menu to provide fast access to files in the right formats. Make PDF proof sheets for printing, sharing, and reviewing.
Don’t Change the Way You Work
Portfolio Server works with your existing folders, file servers, and creative applications so you don’t need to work differently. We can handle whatever you throw at us – Portfolio Server supports all major image, video and document file formats and can literally catalog any type of file.
