Thumbnail gallery index of your archived disks
A survey by Computer Graphics World showed that 41% of agencies store their closed jobs on CD or DVDs. Therefore, it's not unusual to see stacks of DVD archive disks lying around the office, unaccounted for, or possibly lost. The high-resolution pictures and EPS files on those disks cost thousands of dollars to create. iDigMedia helps your Designers repurpose those images for other jobs by indexing the disks with a thumbnail gallery for easy viewing and retrieval.
Differentiate your company from your competitors
With no effort on your part, our iDigMedia service can differentiate your company from your competitors by delivering those job files back to your customers, or other media buyers, through a portal on your website. No more interruptions to you or your billable Designers to find and present your media. Our servers can dispense ANY kind of graphic image and eliminate the need to produce and distribute CDs which your Designers would otherwise mail to the customer.
Using a simple HTML frame reference, iDigMedia can incorporate into your website a full media browser, search capability, and image download mechanism for all your archive media. Only you will know that iDigMedia is doing the work behind the scenes.
iDigMedia will help you identify and collect your metrics on your archived media
Your agency will have the ability to track all the images downloaded by your customers through iDigMedia. You'll be able to monitor the usage of your website for performance improvement and to calculate return on investment. You can further expand the tracking to link in-house systems to iDigMedia via a customer ID or email address of your choosing.
Increase your company worth
Most agencies do not a have fixed secure structure to monetize their finished assets and leverage them for future use. Once iDigMedia has collected return on investment statistics, we will help you assign value to the reused digital assets and apply that value to your agency net worth. We highly recommend these news articles to help you understand how this works:

Agency Digital Assets Management as a turnkey solution
iDigMedia is designed so that agencies can implement a Digital Asset Management System with minimal planning and execution. We have been through this process many times over the past 10 years. By contracting with us, you are contracting with experts who have seen the job process of 150+ agencies as well as 20+ corporate graphic departments. We encourage your technical staff to use us as a free source of information so that they may setup the system that works best for your environment.
Off-site, plus on-line, storage
Most of our customers, who have made duplicate copies of their archive data, would keep those copies at an offsite data storage facility. For many agencies, this is a costly service with an almost 24 hours turn around time. iDigMedia can perform offsite data storage, but for your dollar, you also get our immediate retrieval service. This allows Designers and Freelance contractors to access job files from the office or home. In the event of a catastrophic disaster, your files are ready for you when your company moves to it's hotsite location.
Thumbnail gallery post of files in your office
For a significantly reduced fee, we will host thumbnails of your archived media on our servers WITHOUT hosting the physical media disks. This is a very cost effective solution for agencies that want access to a graphical index of their archived files but also want to maintain those files on at their own offices. Please contact us at our information support line, , or 214/747-4411, for further details.
We do not expect you to always host the same disk year after year; especially those disks that do not meet your return on investment requirements. However, for any disk hosted with us for at least 12 consecutive months, we will also host a free thumbnail gallery as you are our customer. iDigMedia will maintain one central thumbnail gallery for all your archive media.
iDigMedia Robots in your office
The iDigMedia service was created to put our robots on the web so that agency digital asset management could easily be achieved without the costly outlay of capital and ongoing maintenance. However, for those agencies or corporate graphic departments with high volume of traffic and media, it may be more cost effective to purchase our iDigMedia Robots for onsite use; the typical cost starts around $40,000 and may increase depending on the amount of data that needs to be made accessible. Please contact us at our information support line, , or 214/747-4411, for further details.
