Building n-Tier Architectures for Media-Rich Management using XML: ArtesiaTech, 11 of 13
The same XML standard that serves beneficially to construct a high quality, completely scalable, enterprise digital asset management system is also equally applicable for pushing rich media content, and its associated metadata, downstream to a variety of distribution channels. As digital assets are rendered from a repository or a directory, XML serves, again, as the data glue binding metadata and content. Thereafter, one or more transformation programs can be applied to enhance/filter metadata and convert content types from one format to another. Subsequently, the digital assets can be aggregated to populate an asunder of publication vehicles, such as page layout programs, CD mastering tools or web site management software as illustrated in Figure 16-2.
