eMotion Launches Hosted Service to Support Digital Media Management and Collaboration

Dec 10, 2002

eMotion, Inc., a provider of digital media management software and services, has announced the launch of CreativePartner Project, a new service that allows customers to engage eMotion's digital media management software solution and hosting services on a project-by-project basis.  The new offering is intended to enable eMotion to target a much broader range of customers seeking a digital media management and collaboration solution for creative projects, but not necessarily on a continuous basis.  Discovery Communications is eMotion's first customer to take advantage of the new CreativePartner Project service. Discovery has used eMotion's media archiving hosted service for the past six years to manage and distribute thousands of digital images, graphics, and logos stored in the company's virtual library.  Discovery decided to also subscribe to CreativePartner Project for three months this Fall to take advantage of the new service and its content collaboration tools.  CreativePartner Project enabled Discovery to streamline the annual process for selecting its core collection of images that will be featured in the network's branding and marketing initiatives for the coming year. The CreativePartner Project service includes set-up, hosting, operation, and administration of a Web-based digital media management solution for as little as two weeks to as long as six months or more.  Clients can establish a project workspace for their assets (graphics, photos, video and audio files) and use features including: secure archiving of media assets; natural language search; the ability to collaborate and annotate directly on media assets via the eMotion Viewer; review and approve assets online; set project timelines to guide team-based projects; and establish global teams with varying levels of access. In addition to CreativePartner Project, eMotion offers licensed software solutions MediaPartner Enterprise, CreativePartner, and ArchivePartner to customers that require a full-time digital media management solution. eMotion has over 50 customers using its products.
