If you are confused about the difference between Media Streaming, HTTP progressive download, IIS Smooth Streaming and IIS Live Smooth Streaming, here’s a wonderful whitepaper by Alex Zambelli that I strongly suggest you to read.
You know, talking about Digital Assets Management you often hear about streaming, but IMHO sometimes this word is abused. This whitepaper explains you what streaming really is, and talks about other techinques that can reach the same goal, while not streaming anything!
While writing the Digital Assets Management chapter for the Real World SharePoint 2010 book which has just been published, I stumbled upon this web site.
Although it’s not SharePoint-centric, it contains a plethora of insights about Digital Assets Management as a discipline.
I had the opportunity to contribute to this amazing project, Real World SharePoint 2010 – Indispensable Experiences from 22 MVPs, now published by Wrox (http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/Real-World-SharePoint-2010-Indispensable-Experiences-from-22-MVPs.productCd-0470597135.html).
The book is a sort of anthology, made up of several indipendent, although related topics about SharePoint 2010: workflows, BCS, authentication, management, client and server development.
I wrote, together with my friend and colleague Igor Macori, the chapter about to Digital Assets Management: it covers both administration and development tasks, and it is aimed at providing an overview of the main aspects you should consider while analyzing and defining a DAM solution.
Take a look, you’re going to find somenthing interesting and, I hope, even something fun 🙂
