Description of Feature Pack

New automation and delivery features for Dynamic Media. 

Upgrade release for Dynamic Media Classic customers. 

What's Included in Dynamic Media Feature Pack 14410 and 18912

 
General:
  • Setup and ConfigurationSimplified setup and configuration of more settings.
  • FTP Ingestion (available via FP 18912): Bulk upload large volume of assets and/or very large file size assets through FTP for more scalable and performant ingestion. FTP jobs can be scheduled on a recurring basis to automate ingestion.
  • Asset Replicator (available via FP 18912): For customers transitioning from Dynamic Media Classic (Scene7) to Dynamic Media, master assets will be replicated from their existing S7 repository to the Dynamic Media repository. This enables customers to achieve the following benefits during the upgrade:
    1. No need to change URLs used on their existing production sites.
    2. No need to rewrite API automation scripts or integrations with 3rd party systems.
    3. No need to re-develop custom branded interactive viewers.

Imaging: 

  • Viewer Keyboard Accessibility: Ensure compliance with W3C accessibility standards, enabling use of keyboard controls and shortcuts to interact with all viewer actions.
  • Set AutomationAutomatically generate image sets or spin sets at scale, based on a common image file naming convention.
  • Image Quality: Image presets can leverage Bicubic Sharp which is the Photoshop default resampler for reducing image size. Improves image quality to most closely match Photoshop.
  • Color Management: Ingested assets will retain their color space (RGB, CMYK, Gray) and embedded color profile.  Dynamic image renditions can be generated to deliver color corrected images which represent the color as consistently as possible among different channels such as print vs. digital experiences.
  • Advanced FilesEnhanced Dynamic Imaging rendition support for InDesign, Illustrator, PDF, and Adobe Postscript files. Ability to upload source assets to Dynamic Media and post-process them for delivery via Dynamic Media Classic (ie. convert PSD to unage template, rasterize PDF and convert to eCatalog, etc). 

Video:

  • Player Keyboard Accessibility: Ensure compliance with W3C accessibility standards, enabling use of keyboard controls and shortcuts to interact with all video player actions

Delivery:

  • HTTP/2 Delivery HTTP/2 is the updated web protocol that improves the way browsers and servers communicate, allowing for faster transfer of information while reducing the amount of processing power needed. Delivery of Dynamic Media assets can be over HTTP/2 which provides better response and load times. 
  • Instant PublishAccelerate time to go live by instantly publishing rich media assets upon ingest (note: we will continue to support scheduled or manually initiated publish).
  • Static Content Delivery: Publish and deliver additional assets such as PDFs, audio files, GIFs, etc 
  • Cache InvalidationTrigger immediate content updates on your site by clearing the cache at the CDN. Useful when updating existing assets already live in production.
  • RulesetsTransform Dynamic Media URLs for various use cases such as to generate SEO-friendly URLs or to alias URLs used in different company sub-brands or division
