Archimedia Case Studies

Agriculture Canada

Agriculture Canada wished to collate and share all of their visual assets in a library. Archimedia started by collating and sorting ~50,000 assets then distilled this down to a manageable level where proper editing from the client was achievable. Application of the controlled vocabulary was put to ~3500 assets and inserted into Asset Bank residing on Archimedia’s servers. Archimedia was the project lead of this. We provided both the guidance and the labour / technology to enable this project.

Archimedia tasks included, but are not limited to:

  • Project management of the software installation by Asset Bank on our Canadian based servers.
  • Administrative setup of the instance, after multiple in person and web meetings with Agriculture Canada
  • Adapted the software to the sharing policies needed by Agriculture Canada
  • Set up Administrators in the system, providing them with the permissions sets needed to administer the system, as well as provide new content to the system.
  • Provide training to the administrators and users of the system via both an in person demonstration and training session, as well as web meetings and through printed collateral.
  • Provide ongoing first line support via phone and  e-mail for the hosted solution.
  • Provide ongoing advice and guidance on the best approach to the system.

Transport Canada

Transport Canada wanted to create a hosted Digital Asset Management system, which was completely bilingual in both English and French. Also included was the need for administrative setup of the instance, the insertion of ~3,500 images into the instance, as well as onsite training ongoing support.

Project was initiated in October 2010 and the project was online in December 2011.

Archimedia Hosted Digital Asset Management System

Queens’ University October 2008 – January 2009
Hosted on server since 2009

Archimedia started by collating and sorting ~100,000 assets then distilled this down to a manageable level where proper editing from the client was achievable. Application of the controlled vocabulary was put to ~5500 assets (images and videos) and inserted into their Asset Bank residing on Archimedia’s servers.

Creation and implementation of a Controlled Vocabulary was completed by Archimedia and subsequently used in the setup and workflow for all asset handling.

Project was initiated in October 2008 and the project was online in December 2008.
