Your business is complicated. It has many different people in many different divisions doing many different things. Unsurprisingly, they all have unique ways of interacting with your products, services, clients, and assets.
A DAM (digital asset management system) provides an effective, streamlined way to manage your digital assets. Many companies begin by using a tool like Dropbox, but then find they need much greater functionality. So they upgrade to a DAM that services the needs of their organisation.
But is your DAM future-proofed? It goes without saying that it needs to be cloud-based, but are there other elements of your digital asset management system that could be showing signs of needing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation?
Here are three of the key considerations when assessing if your DAM will stand the test of time.
With upscaling comes a vast increase in the size of your team, perhaps globally. So you need your employees in far-flung places to access assets as effortlessly as those in the office next door.
Also, we’re in the age of ‘big video’. Digital files are swelling in size (4K video) and, as if it wasn’t enough of a challenge to store such big files, a DAM must be able to transcode and render them automatically.
Add to this the need for fast file transfers and you’ve got yourself a whole lot of potential headaches if cracks start to show in your DAM.
2. A Seamless Workflow
Nothing sabotages productivity as much as a fractured workflow. Your DAM is your servant in this regard. It can automate laborious processes, thus freeing up your team’s time for more creative tasks.
Slow review and approvals on digital assets is also a common problem for organisations. Consumers’ voracious appetite for content, particularly video, needs to be satisfied but enterprises are struggling to keep up. If team members give feedback on a collaborative video project using time-stamped annotations and approve it through your DAM, this speeds up the time to market considerably.
We can’t wait for the IBC 2019 Show (13–17 Sept) this year, particularly because we’ve been chosen by AWS (Amazon Web Services) to exhibit in their booth. It’s the second time this year they’ve picked us: we were also on their booth at NAB 2019 in Las Vegas in April.

It’s been a very exciting year so far in another way. We also attended Avid Connect 2019 in Las Vegas, where we initiated collaborations with some high profile Hollywood clients.

At NAB 2019 and Avid Connect 2019, we rocked Vegas! Well, maybe not in the traditional sense but we rocked it our way since we’re not as famous as Celine Dion (not yet, anyway).
Avid Connect 2019
We were delighted to launch our partnership with the world’s premier editing software at Avid Connect 2019. Overcast’s Collaboration, Review and Approval application is now directly incorporated into Avid’s Media Central | Cloud UX platform and our presence at Connect 2019 has already led to collaborations with some high profile Hollywood clients.
From the Aria Resort we headed for the Las Vegas Convention Center, where we spent the rest of the week at NAB 2019. What a buzz! It was very exciting being on the Amazon Web Services stand, having been selected by AWS from technology companies worldwide as one of its 12 key tech partners for the event.
Building technology partnerships with two of the biggest media players in the world is central to Overcast’s global ambition.
After 8 days and more than a hundred client meetings, we left Las Vegas on a high. We can’t wait for next year!

It’s tech heaven in Nevada this week with two of the key global media, entertainment and technology conferences taking place back-to-back. Las Vegas doesn’t do things by half so it’s the ideal place to host these phenomenal events.
We could feel the excitement among the crowds as soon as our plane landed and we couldn’t wait to get to our stand at Avid Connect to start chatting with other tech enthusiasts.
Avid Connect 2019
Avid Connect (6–7 April) at the Aria Resort was a huge success. The two days featured many fascinating demonstrations and talks. Experts from Avid were joined by speakers from Microsoft Azure to discuss the media industry moving to the cloud and AI disruption in media workflows. Another excellent discussion centred on monetization opportunities with live video streaming and OTT.
We at Overcast HQ were delighted to showcase our latest integration with the premier editing solution in the world at Connect 2019. Overcast’s Collaboration, Review and Approval application recently went live on the Avid platform and already there are global media companies taking on our unique workflow solution.
From there it was on to NAB 2019 (April 8–11) in the Las Vegas Convention Center, where we are co-sited with AWS – yes that’s right, Amazon selected us as their tech partner to join them here. They are expecting 100,000 film, video and TV experts and engineers from around the world during the conference. We’re having a blast!
Day 1 featured an Avid session with John Ottman, Oscar-winning editor of Bohemian Rhapsody talking about assembling scenes and his editorial process. Other hot topics that will be explored during NAB 2019 include AI and machine learning; trending technologies; cybersecurity; how cloud is pushing the limits for content; and the content creation and management workflow.
Whether you’re a production house, studio, network or brand, there are many talks and panel discussions exploring the opportunities being generated by the explosive growth in the global OTT content marketplace.
