Comparison between Digizuite™ DAM for Sitecore and Sitecore Media Library

 

How does Digizuite™ DAM for Sitecore strengthen Sitecore?

The Digizuite™ DAM for Sitecore module extends Sitecore with a full-scale digital asset management (DAM) system, delivering the advantages of a single source for all media files. While Sitecore’s Media Library allows perfect website image management, a centralized digital asset management system optimizes digital workflows and supports multi-channel management, adding value to your Sitecore platform.

 

DAM for Sitecore replaces Sitecore Media Library

Digizuite™ DAM for Sitecore is a scalable alternative to Sitecore Media Library. While both Sitecore Media Library and Digizuite™ DAM for Sitecore can support and resize images, only Digizuite™ DAM for Sitecore can perform advanced processes when resizing images, e.g. retaining transparency. Offering both scalability, speed, and flexibility.

 

Digizuite™ DAM for Sitecore provides better performance than Sitecore Media Library, or any other DAM integration:

  • Asset data files are stored outside of Sitecore’s database
  • Only placeholders and metadata are stored in the Sitecore database
  • Publishing is fast because only metadata and placeholders need to be copied from the master database to the web database
  • The data files can be stored on a CDN to increase performance further

 

DAM for Sitecore provides additional features:

  • Two-way synchronization between Digizuite™ DAM and Sitecore
  • Language versioned rich metadata structures
  • Asset data size is not limited by hard limitations
  • Native videos in Sitecore
  • Automatic generation of PDF thumbnails
  • Automated and dynamic cropping: Choose the most important detail in the image, and the system will automatically crop the area around the detail.
  • Metadata API for using metadata in the presentation
  • One asset can be represented in multiple qualities. Upload a 4K video to the DAM, and it will automatically generate a web version, a download version, and a version for the info screen in your reception.
