Enterprise-grade digitisation &
digital asset management (DAM)

DAMsmart digitises video, film and audiotape collections. Our clients include state and federal government agencies, libraries, broadcasters, sporting organisations, schools & universities, production houses, not-for-profits, corporate archives and many more. And not only have we helped access and preserve collections in Australia, we are also working in the Pacific, Asia and the Middle East.

We can convert your entire archive — no matter what the size or what the condition — to digital formats that suit your needs whether that is for use in a file-based workflow for production, sharing over the internet or preserving your collection for the future. We want to help you get the most out of your content.

Then, once it’s converted, we can design a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system, so you can access and manage your digital collection right from your desktop using a flexible and secure solution that you control.

Why digitise?

Film, video & audio collections are under threat from degradation and technology obsolescence. The National Film and Sound Archive recently pointed to a 10 year window to digitise their collection due to obsolescence. The only way to preserve our media - to monetise it, to share its cultural significance - is to digitise.

What are we working on now?

We're digitising and preserving a collection from the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
