Eleven years ago, Robert J Davis, a noted health journalist, and Loren Goldfarb, a former network television producer, realized that the millions of TVs in medical office lobbies and waiting rooms could be a compelling delivery platform for well-produced medical content. After all, the healthcare field is a multi-trillion dollar market and incredibly competitive. In place of cable news or daytime game shows, the team knew they could offer informative content tailored to individual healthcare practices.
Our team at iconik has been growing, and we’ve been busy working to make iconik more powerful for you. 2019 is going to be great for iconik and we’re excited to roll out the first lineup of improvements for this year. Our aim has always been to help you work faster and smarter around your media. If you share that same goal, then you’re going to like these updates.
iconik Media® and BASE Media Cloud Partner to Deliver Integrated Cloud Services for Little Dot Studios We’re excited to share that we’ve partnered with BASE Media Cloud to integrate iconik, our cloud video hub, into BASE Media Cloud’s managed cloud services platform. The integration will enable the organisation and easy collaboration of media content throughout the production, post-production and delivery workflow. BASE Media Cloud delivers globally-available cloud services for digital media companies of all sizes, enabling them to securely store, process, edit, and distribute media online.
Terms and conditions of use are not often highlighted but vitally important to ensure everyone is getting the best out of a service. As well as continually updating our solutions, we are also continually reviewing our terms to make sure that they always reflect the best interests of both our customers and Cantemo. In the same way that it is important that iconik is easy to use without in-depth technical knowledge, terms should also be easy to understand without in-depth legal knowledge.
Our number one priority is to develop beautiful yet powerful solutions for media management. As such, we are continually refining our designs and solutions. With the latest release of iconik, we have introduced features that make searching and metadata management even more powerful than before. Here is a quick overview of the most important updates: 1. New Design of Metadata Administration Metadata management is essential for media management. If you don’t have proper metadata, you won’t be able to find your assets, simple as that!
Today we announced an integration between iconik and Backblaze B2 storage. In the meantime, here are five reasons why we think iconik and Backblaze B2 is a winning combination. 1. Flexibility of the cloud Cloud workflows have been much talked about but are suddenly gaining traction for a couple of reasons. The most obvious one is the flexibility cloud affords, enabling you to pay for what you need at any given time rather than needing huge infrastructure in place just in case.
iconik is all about making life easier for users, so that they can concentrate on creating and delivering great video. This release sees the introduction of notifications for a couple of different scenarios: Firstly, we have introduced notifications that can let a user know when a job has finished. This is useful for those jobs that take some time to perform, as is the case when handling video. This could, for example, be transcoding or a file transfer
Media management is more than just video. We know that media management is great for all kinds of media files, whether video, images, or even pdf files that are a mix of images and text. That is why this release sees improvements for managing and previewing PDF files. We’ve also made some improvements to the User Interface. 1. PDF Support Being able to preview PDFs properly in the web without having to download them is pretty important for customers working with PDF’s and other documents.
I have often been asked why, in a world full of low-cost and free options to help businesses manage large amounts of content, anyone would choose to spend thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars on a media management system. The answer is simple: more efficient media management means more efficient storytelling and ultimately results in a better connection with your audience. While it’s true that applications like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive all do handle some level of organization and sharing of files, when it comes to truly helping you manage your media files, they simply don’t cut it.
If you have been watching with bated breath for the next release, you may have noticed that it has been almost two months since we made a feature release in iconik. However, you will be pleased to know that it’s because we’ve been busy designing and developing. Thanks to a couple of months with our heads down, this release is packed with some pretty great features. Updates include: 1. Archive Support iconik now supports archiving to various cloud based solutions.
