Iconik Updates With Metadata Subcategories, Proxy Resolution Control

Enhancements in the latest version include the addition of warning labels, metadata subcategories, and the ability to change proxy resolutions and bitrates.

With warning labels, users can add warnings around usage restrictions, rights expirations, or other important factors to individual assets. These can be added in the iconik MAM or via the iconik API to trigger warnings from third party solutions. The warnings appear at the top of the assets and enable users to very quickly see all the limitations associated with each individual piece of content to avoid any accidental infringements.

The metadata subcategories feature means only the most important data will be shown for an asset or collection. Stripping out irrelevant fields makes it much easier and quicker to get to the relevant information.

The latest version also offers users the ability to choose to view high resolution proxies. Low resolution proxies help save on bandwidth, but at those times when high resolution is required, users can now adjust those settings to determine resolution and bitrate needed in the transcoder settings.

Parham Azimi, CEO, iconik, commented: “Our customers need smart management tools that can adapt as their needs evolve. With iconik we are continually rolling out a steady stream of new features to respond to changing requirements. These feature updates are also designed to further reduce the complexity of managing media so that our users can get on with creating great content.”
