FUNKE MEDIENGRUPPE, one of Germany's largest newspaper and magazine publishers, centralizes its digital assets in a cloud based Content Hub that will be accessed from all editorial departments. The Hamburg based software producer Digital Collections conducts the project based on Microsoft Azure Cloud technology.
DC-X goes PIM: In September 2015, the internationally operating distributor and retailer Gebr. Heinemann started using Digital Collections' Digital Asset Management System DC-X for image workflow and product information management.
The Simple UI, DC-X's newly developed, easy-to-use Graphical User Interface, enables Nordkurier journalists to report more flexibly in a more mobile and advanced manner.
The ORF (Austrian broadcast corporation) has been using DC products since 1997 to manage incoming pictures and to organize its press picture archive.
DC-X was first set up at the OZ and the Lübecker Nachrichten in 2010 as an archiving solution for articles, pages and pictures and to manage incoming newswires, emails etc. Functions such as the import of reader photos, the archiving of audio and video files and eventually the Story Editor for digital publishing have arrived little by little.
The Digital Asset Management (DAM) system DC-X has become the heart of the software landscape at the Ringier media group in Switzerland. It is the central software used to create content in a media-neutral way before making it available for online, print and mobile publishing.
“By using Content-X as an editorial solution, we see ourselves as a successful benchmark for other small publishing companies who are cost-conscious and do not need an editorial system that has endless functions, is difficult to operate and needs high investment. We can definitely fully recommend Content-X.”
