Development of a Media Asset Management System

Development of a Media Asset Management System

.NET, MS SQL Server


The Customer is Pixco, a Belgian media production services company, working on a generic media asset management system.


The Customer needed to develop an information management solution for Toyota-Lexus. This solution should enable Toyota-Lexus employees to create content, upload, download and delete personal files located on an FTP server via HTTP protocol using a user-friendly Flex-based interface.


The extensive experience of our team convinced the Customer to choose ScienceSoft as a reliable outsourcing partner for the development of a Web File Sharing module for their digital asset management (DAM) platform. ScienceSoft’s team designed the solution’s business logic, delivered web service and web client applications, and performed extensive testing activities.

The Web File Sharing module for the Customer’s DAM platform had to act as a transparent layer on top of the existing FTP Server. It enabled the user to log on to the FTP server without entering access credentials, upload and download files through the HTTP connection without using the FTP server. This solution was specifically designed for transferring small and medium-size files (up to 50 MB).

The module had to be incorporated into the existing framework application. The developed functional module could be accessed from the home page or from the administration panel. Moreover, it could work in a standalone mode.


The result of the joint work between the customer’s and ScienceSoft’s teams was a successful delivery and integration of a Web File Sharing application.
