Dynamic Media helps deliver rich visual merchandising and marketing assets on demand, automatically scaled for consumption on web, mobile, and social sites. Using a set of master assets, Dynamic Media generates and delivers multiple variations of rich content in real time through its global, scalable, performance-optimized network.

Dynamic media serves interactive viewing experiences, including zoom, 360-degree spin, and video. Dynamic media uniquely incorporates the workflows of the Adobe Experience Manager digital asset management (Assets) solution to simplify and streamline the digital campaign management process.

Note

If you are using Dynamic Media, you cannot simultaneously use the polling importer or automatic uploads available if integrate Scene7 into AEM. See enabling Dynamic Media. Dynamic Media is disabled by default.
