Seamless integration

Use the same content for multiple channels. By connecting third-party systems, such as content management systems for print and online, social media platforms or Adobe Creative Cloud programs, you can use your assets for several publications. Another option is the headless approach. With a headless DAM system, the assets are available as raw data sources. So there is no "head," i.e., there is no standard front-end system. For developers this means they can set as many "heads" as they want on the DAM system via API to provide content for various channels, such as websites, apps or mobile technology.

Multichannel Publishing with CUE

Reach new audiences with stories for every format. CUE is a multichannel publishing platform that goes beyond the traditional content management system. Using the story-first principle, CUE allows you to create stories according to the modular principle. Story elements such as text sections, videos, images or social media feeds form the building blocks that can then be combined for various stories and channels. DC-X can be integrated as a native component so you can search for assets directly and insert them into the appropriate templates via drag and drop. Find out more.


Content-X is the common Editorial solution by Digital Collections and ppi Media. The plug-ins developed by ppi Media link the Digital Asset Management System DC-X to the Adobe InDesign desktop publishing application.

Whether you prefer 'Text before Layout', 'Layout before Text' or 'Text and Layout': Content-X is here to help you. Layout geometry for an article can be created in DC-X using InDesign so that editors can fill it with content. Conversely, the entire article can be originally created in InDesign and then written to DC-X for use in other channels or systems. Learn more
