In this webinar we take an up-to-date look at DAM Systems from multiple perspectives. Digital Asset Management systems allow users to manage their content with ease allowing them deliver, protect and monetise their content.

We will consider how these systems are setting new standards in digital asset licensing and copyright management, through new technologies like AI. We will discuss content importing and ingestion, rights management, keywording, licensing, and distribution.

We will also look at the challenges for DAMs and Asset Managers, and the trends this technology lends itself to going forward.

Joining us for this practical and informative discussion will be Heidi Hudson, The Kennel Club; Don Resnick, 20/20 Software; Gregg Guest, FADEL and Peter Shackleton, Capture.

Through their various long-term experience of using and working with DAM systems these speakers will share their expertise and knowledge from their different positions.

Donald S. Resnick, Ph.D., 20/20 Software

Don Resnick has been interested in computers and computer science since his college days. He received his Ph.D. in Psychology, with a sub-specialty in computer language and artificial intelligence. His first major programming experience was his Doctoral Dissertation, which was done on a main-frame computer using punch cards. He has taught both Undergraduate and Graduate level Psychology and Statistics.

In 1993, he developed a stock media management program called ProStock Agency with input from several stock photo agencies. As technology changed and advanced, he also authored CD Stock for Windows – a CD-ROM search-and-display program; and then PsWeb – a full-fledged eCommerce engine for the Web. Over the years, he has guided the continual upgrades of 20/20’s software to meet the ever-changing advances in media-management technology.

Although 20/20 now has a full-time staff of programmers, Don still keeps his hand in programming. Plus the combination of psychology and computer science has enhanced his listening and problem-solving skills and gives him a unique ability to understand the complexities of the human-technology interface.
