About

Before Asset Bank, Focolare Movement had to send out DVDs of their videos and assets to their members. At this point, they had 10,000 Betacam tapes that desperately needed to be archived somewhere secure online.

Digital transformation 

Asset Bank helped Focolare migrate 10,000 Digital Betacam onto the new digital platform  

INTRODUCTION

Chiara Lubich is the founder of Focalore Movement. Her aim was to bring unity between churches, religions, cultures and people. Now, Focalore aims to bring a new style of life to people in politics, the civil field and beyond.

Migrating 10,000 Betacam tapes into a digital format 

non-profit digital asset management
the challenge 

Asset Bank was approached by CSC media, the in-house A/V department of Focolare, to provide a Media Asset Management system that would allow them to securely share their videos with their local and regional associations all over the world.

They previously shared their content via physical DVDs, but after consultation with our DAM specialists, they realised a digital asset library could save them a lot of time and space. To give you an idea of the scale of their assets, they have an archive of 10,000 Digital Betacam tapes that needed to go digital.

The results

CSC’s Asset Library was launched in March 2014 and they now have a fully digital library of assets. In other words, they waved goodbye to DVDs!

Asset Bank acts as a global library that regional centres can access instantly with secure logins. They can download any videos that they have permission to use and metadata is embedded into the H.264 video files, so any tapes that are uploaded, the data is automatically transferred with the file. This means that when users download and open these videos in iTunes or VLC, for example, all metadata and cataloguing is still in place. It really is the ultimate time-saver.


THE RESULTS Kim Rowley, Co-director 

‘The ability to set permission levels, harvest metadata from uploaded video files and link text and audio assets to a video has given us a functional workflow at an affordable price. All this topped with superlative customer service convinces us that we have made the right choice with Asset Bank.’
