"Notre-DAM is a multi-user, web-based application accessible from the most popular browsers... Notre-DAM can store and organize different types of digital assets: video, images, audio and documents... Notre-DAM can seamlessly manage different renditions of a digital item. Renditions are distinct views of the same object, semantically equivalent but different for several aspects, such as the size, a watermarking or the encoding format. "

"Notre-DAM supports many encoding formats. Among these: BMP, GIF, JPEG, TIFF, PDF, PNG, DV/AVI, Mpeg-1 Video, Mpeg-2 Video, H.264, H.263, Xvid, AAC, AIFF, Dolby AC3, PCM, Mpeg-1 Video (layer I, II, III), OGG Vorbis, WAV."

"Notre-DAM is a client server application that relies on MediaDART, a framework for resource processing that performs all those “heavy tasks” such as transcoding, resizing, extracting metadata, etc.. MediaDART can be scaled over a cluster of computers accessing a shared storage... Small installations are also possible, with MediaDART running on the same computer that hosts the Notre-DAM and with the possibility to add new nodes later on."
