Engines

Engines visualize your assets, allowing for viewing, playback and better interaction.

All NetXposure Digital Asset Management solutions require the selection of an Engine Module. These modules include third party technologies and provide various levels of support for images, document and rich media files. In most cases, the “formats” column will equate to the ability to see thumbnail and preview representations of the asset files (the exceptions being the XMP Toolkit and the Digimarc add-on Engines).

NetXposure has a plugin architecture, so if your format or engine is not listed, please contact us. If the Engine exists for your format, we can write the plugin to support your specific requirements.

In this way, NetXposure can be your single-point of contact so you can avoid the multi-vendor “blame-game”. We have worked with these Engines (and their respective vendors) for years and are very adept at handling the integration issues and idiosyncrasies of these products. Contact sales at netx dot net for more details.
