New tools that support exporting content to social media sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter start the list. This allows users to easily send content to supported social media sites directly from the MerlinX interface. Users simply select an asset in Merlin, and send it on its way
Rights management, so very important to many of DAM users has also been improved. Not only is there a dedicated rights management panel that displays important rights related fields, downloading of content may be restricted based on Metadata. The ability to upload has also been improved. The already easy-to-use web upload process now allows content to be directly uploaded into collections.
And there is more…new tools for managing and editing keywords allow for enforced keyword editing from the MerlinX browser client.
Fast searching has been made even more powerful… search within collections or search for file types in a more granular fashion.
We did not leave out video or audio either. Now, add markers or denote clips and add searchable tags to marked frames and clips. Then, users may export the marked frames and clips.
Other improvements include:
- Manually link or unlink items
- Integration with Trax, our assignment request system
- Create pick lists that support type-ahead for data entry or searching
