Video asset management,
Lookatme™ style

The growing demand for video content

Video content has become so much a part of our lives that more than 66% of people worldwide now say it is their number one source of information. This fact is further supported by research that shows the average person views 6 hours and 48 minutes of video each week. With such a demand for content and other research indicating 93% of businesses gain new customers as a result of branded video, it's easy to see why video management is a growing concern for brands and organisations.

The growing demand for managing video content securely

Video content is expensive to produce. Globally, organisations now invest more than $39b on video content each year. With such an investment, there comes opportunities and risks. Lookatme™ provides a Digital Asset Management solution that helps you manage both. 

Securely storing your video content

Many organisations take for granted that content providers have a secure solution to manage the video content they commission. This is a mistake. Many production companies do not have secure solutions to manage your video content. What's more, they may incorrectly label content or have hardware failures. In light of the current economic climate, content provider businesses are failing even more than usual, resulting in organizations losing their video content and investment. The only way to have complete faith that your valuable video content is safe, secure and accessible is through a solution like Lookatme™.

Single source of truth

Your Lookatme™ Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution allows you to aggregate and curate your entire video collection. From raw, unedited content, through to downloadable or streamed high-res content in or delivery on social media, having all of your video managed through the one secure, cloud-based solution, with built in redundancy is the best way to mitigate risk of loss and copyright infringement, while maximising usage and value of your investment.

Secure access

Your Lookatme™ DAM makes it simple for you to manage who has access to your video assets and how they are used. Role-based access allows some to download content for editing, while others may only have viewing permissions. Whatever your needs, you have centralized control.

Simple discover

Lookatme™ provides simple video discovery tools. These tools help deliver a more intuitive user experience and have made Lookatme™ the preferred DAM for major tourism, government, non for profit, fintech and other organisations around the globe. 

Whether providing access to content for production teams, media, in house stakeholders or other groups, Lookatme™ allows you to create individualized discovery and user experiences.

Streaming content around the globe

Whether you're a tourism group or a global brand, or local government, increasingly you need to make streaming video content available to stakeholders, the media and other groups around the globe. Lookatme™ DAM clients stream video content with confidence around the world every day. Lookatme™ makes this practical, thanks to a highly secure, cloud-based solution that utilises the features of one of the world's best video streaming solutions, Brightcove.

Lookatme™ with Brightcove allows you to generate secure embed codes, which can then be added to websites, video portals and other online assets. Embed codes allow you to better manage and monitor the usage of video assets across multiple channels and platforms.

Managing large video assets

The prevalence of high-resolution video in production, editing and delivery continues to increase. Your Lookatme™ DAM has been designed to allow you to upload and deliver large video files. Lookatme™ clients consistently upload and provide files through download and streaming as high as 150GB. Whether you are managing raw footage or delivering 4K or high-quality content for device or event viewing, you can trust Lookatme™ to deliver your business needs reliably and securely.

Your responsibilities with video content

There are many instances where video creators retain copyright, usage and attribution rights. Whether your organisation has directly or indirectly acquired stock video (e.g. a content provider has purchased or commissioned video on your behalf), as the end-user you have the responsibility and liability of complying with terms of usage. 

Managing copyright, usage and attribution rights

Copyright Agency Limited is one of the world’s most renowned copyright authorities and is also a Lookatme™ client. Their focus is solely on management of copyright for creative works. They chose Lookatme™ as their Digital Asset Management solution because of its exceptional copyright management features. With Lookatme™, you and your organisation have the confidence to include restricted assets knowing the copyright licensing conditions can be managed easily and correctly.

Managing stock footage

It has become more common for organizations to purchase stock footage to fill the content gaps in video production. It is also common for entire projects to be composed of stock footage. Some stock footage is copyright-free, but most is not. The good news is that when you purchase and download stock video footage, most comes with embedded copyright, usage and attribution information. When you upload this content into your Lookatme™ DAM, it makes this information available to view, allowing administrators and project coordinators to ensure copyright compliance.
