In November, at its vjoonity events in New York and Hamburg, vjoon unveiled a new digital asset management platform, vjoon seven.

Andreas Schrader: “Managing and exchanging assets between a DAM and vjoon K4 has never been easier.”

At the event, vjoon CEO Andreas Schrader presented a live demo of vjoon seven, a scalable, API-first platform for managing all types of assets.

As well as being a complementary product to vjoon’s publishing platform K4, vjoon seven is also being offered as a standalone product and independent application stack.

vjoon seven manages content using a sophisticated metadata management that takes all current standards into account, says the company. Assets can also be assigned to specific users for editing, and the workflow can be controlled via an asset status. vjoon seven also has a lot to offer in the area of connectivity. Adobe InDesign, InDesign Server, InCopy and Office applications including Word, Excel and PowerPoint are already integrated, and users can work with familiar applications directly from within seven.

Easily configurable rights management controls access and protects sensitive data or even entire areas. vjoon seven is designed for use across all business organisations, including publishers, agencies, and corporate markets.

vjoon seven and K4 are already deeply integrated and update each other. All content from seven, including metadata, can be used in production with K4. Rights of use are controlled directly from seven. In addition, vjoon seven can be used as a digital archive with the possibility of repurposing after the production of various publications.

“K4 customers in particular benefit from our new DAM platform because the integration with vjoon K4 is unique and extremely efficient,” says Andreas Schrader. “Managing and exchanging assets between a DAM and vjoon K4 has never been easier.”

The stringent API-First principle in vjoon seven affords that such a broad range of extensions is available right from the start. Via a REST API, all functions of the platform can be accessed and their functionality greatly expanded and adapted to individual requirements, says vjoon.
