CUE DAM feature highlights
All assets in one view

You can observe coverage of other media in real time, and access press photos, agency reports, social media feeds and archived data at any time.
Leverage the power of AI
The user only added the keyword “Hawaii” during upload, but after sending this picture to AI services, CUE DAM was able to enrich the metadata of this picture with more keywords.

Frequently asked questions
What is digital asset management system?
A digital asset management system, or DAM system, is a centralized storage place for all media assets. Within a DAM solution, you can efficiently store, organize, find, manage, access, share and distribute your organization's digital assets. It is also a digital library or archive for all your images, photos, creative files, videos, audio files, presentations, documents, and more. A digital asset management system establishes a systematic approach to organizing and retrieving assets in your company.
How does CUE DAM help me as a journalist?
Easy and quick content creation is one of the most important goals in today's newsrooms. Journalists depend on digital assets to drive their productivity. A DAM system allows them to find and access all digital assets more efficiently. It is the main archive for all past and current media assets.
What kinds of assets can I manage?
A DAM system is a digital library for media files. You can manage all kinds of assets like images, photos, creative files, videos, audio files, presentations, documents, and more. As long as it's a file, you can put it into CUE DAM. On top of that, it is also possible to manage non-file-based assets such as texts or stories.
What is a collection?
Collections provide a way for users to organize "their" assets. Collections can be compared to folders and sub-folders in a file system. CUE DAM allows users to create hierarchies of collections, in order to reflect their needs and internal structures. Collections can for example be based on calendar dates like year, month or week or geo locations like Europe, Scandinavia, Denmark.
What is a variant?
Everything starts with a file. When uploaded into CUE DAM, the file becomes the base variant of the new asset. Over the course of its life, the asset might collect different variants of that base variant, i.e. hard crop, clipping path, pixel mosaic blurring, etc. Each of these variants gets its own unique name so that it can be distinguished from the base variant that got things started. Example: The base variant is a JPEG picture with two persons on it. If you hard crop the person on the left, you could add the JPEG file resulting from the crop as variant "person_left" to the asset.
What is a rendition?
Unlike file variants, where the file's content has been modified compared to the base variant, renditions are basically the same file, but in a different file format, colorspace or resolution. Example: The user uploads a TIFF picture with CMYK colorspace into CUE DAM. For this new asset CUE DAM automatically creates two JPEG renditions from the TIFF file - one RGB JPEG file with 1200x1200 pixels, and one RGB JPEG file with 600x600 pixels. These two renditions are used as fast-loading previews for the web browser.
