How To Index Multimedia Files For Fun And Profit.
A start-up digital content portal for publishers is interested in expanding its services beyond text (and images with metadata).
To improve its offerings, this content distributor is looking for more robust indexing tools for audio, video, as well as images and text files, to provide search and recommendation capabilities.
So, specifically, we're looking for a succinct survey of the landscape for commercial (including open source) Digital Asset Management (DAM) tools that can handle indexing multimedia files.
We are particularly interested in customizable tools that can be used along with home-grown development projects. We would like to know about tools in the same vein as ClearForest, Factiva, etc. -- but for applications beyond text.
Additionally, if you know of any firms that specialize in integrating DAM solutions, our client is interested in your recommendations.
