From the Back Cover
Although content has been around for a long time, the problem of managing and finding it has grown substantially over the last decade. This is a clue to the increase in number of output channels and the amount of content being produced. With the pressure to produce more faster whilst retaining quality, considerable improvements in efficiency are required. Emerging digital formats and digital production tools make fully digital media production without using physical carriers possible. Based on that, file-based production, archive and delivery workflows are established. Besides achieving the required efficiency improvements, fully digital environments also enable new ways of collaboration, communication and commercial exploitation of content. Content management plays a key role in this process since it provides the platform for handling digital media.
Professional Content Management Systems: Handling Digital Media Assets:
- Deals with several aspects related to content management in professional media production, handling and delivery.
- Focuses on the broadcast industry but also considers requirements of other content rich organisations. Covers the entire workflow from the introduction of the media into the system, through the production stages to archiving.
- Introduces the main media formats and encoding principles and the way content is represented in the system - including metadata standards and frameworks.
- Studies the framework architecture and a matching infrastructure for content management systems, recognising the fact that such a system has to integrate seamlessly into existing environments and established business processes.
With an accessible and thorough approach, Professional Content Management Systems: Handling Digital Media Assets offers an overview of this complex topic to students, engineers and technical managers, in the area of data, storage management and multimedia.

I found an enormous amount of details about different video compression types from mpeg 1 to mpeg 7 and more.
i can not see the point of reading the book from start to finish.
As a reference work to be consulted when you like to find some detailed knowledge I find the book very useful.
The book is written from a broadcast television point of view.The main subject is video and more special videos for broadcasting.
Creation and archiving these videos is discussed in detail.
The relative high price of the book indicates that it is written for the few insiders in the subject looking for clear definitions and standards.
Reference to many international standards is given
I find the book very theoretical and there are very detailed schemes of information flow without too many details about hardware shown in the schemes.
I like to classify the book as a very valuable reference book and will further use it as such.
Jan Verweerde (MrClogz1947)
"Professional Content Management System: handling Digital Media Assets", "Digitial Asset Management: how to realize value of video and image libaries" and "Expanding a Digital Content Management System: for the Growing Digital Media Enterprise".
Each book describes the subject in different perspectives. The "Digitial Asset Management: how to realize value of video and image libaries" by David Austerberry is more like introduction to DAM and related concepts and technologies. While "Expanding a Digital Content Management System: for the Growing Digital Media Enterprise" by my former collegaue and friend, Magan Authur is discussing how to plan and implement a large scale digital content management systems.
The Professional Content Management Systems by A Mathure and P. Thomas empersizes much more on (and deeper in) technical and applicaiton design aspects. Besides the basic concepts, it covers a wide range of topics on DAM from user requirements;video production use cases and workflows; media formats and standards; system architecture and integrations; hardware infrastructure and application requirements. The deepth of the discusions on systems architecture of both software and hardware are incrediable. The application modules and use cases scenarios presented for broadcasting industry are very well illustrated. The book reveals fully the authors vivid imagation, creative and industry experience.
Even though I may not completely agree with every piece of the design described in the book, some of the core concepts and use cases described are really valuable. (I have built one of succussful commercial enterprise DAM system used by by many large enterpises in broadcasting, advertising and Coorporate Marketing before this book was published).
I especially recommend this book to Product Managers and System Architect who are trying to build a DAM system; or trying to build applications on top of the DAM System. I have read ths book twice since I brought it over 1 year ago. It's still very refreshing to read it.
disclaimer: I have no association with the authors of the book (don't know them) or BlueOrder.
