Imagen Features Update May 2020

Imagen is a constantly evolving video management platform that puts you in complete control of your content. Here’s a roundup of the new features in our latest release.

Mailchimp Integration

Mailchimp Integration

Add Imagen users to Mailchimp for bulk email marketing, newsletter blasts, client updates and more.

Bulk Downloads

Bulk Downloads

Convenient one-click downloading of complete media sets from a single Imagen record.

Video Concatenation

Video Concatenation

Join multiple files together to create a single long-form video sequence without complex editing software.


Mailchimp Integration

• Capture Mailchimp sign-ups during Imagen registration
• Send bulk emails to Imagen users using Mailchimp
• Simple to set up and manage

Imagen users can now receive email newsletters, company updates, marketing campaigns and more via leading email marketing platform Mailchimp. Simply connect Imagen to Mailchimp using Mailchimp’s API key. 

Construct GDPR compliant registration forms in Imagen and give new users the option to be added to a Mailchimp mailing list. You can even map Imagen’s custom registration fields to Mailchimp fields.

Administrators also have full control over user accounts so they can be removed from mailing lists using Imagen. The two-way integration means that both systems will automatically update if a user unsubscribes or updates their contact details.

Now you’re fully integrated with Mailchimp, you’re free to start creating and sending great-looking emails to your contacts database. Alternative email marketing platforms such as Sendinblue and MailerLite can also be connected to Imagen in the same way as Mailchimp.


Bulk Downloads

Download a complete media set from a single Imagen record with one click. This is particularly useful where an Imagen database record contains multiple media objects. For example:

 

  • Multiple television episodes stored as a series
  • Videos with related files such as promotional posters, scripts or documentation
  • Multiple language versions etc.

Users can now choose to download all media objects available in an Imagen record per rendition – e.g. mezzanine or original quality.  Appropriate access permissions must be in place to access single or multiple media files before batch downloading can be initiated.

Bulk downloading is managed using Imagen Accelerated File Delivery (AFD). Find out more about the benefits of Imagen’s, high speed-file transfer service here.

Create a single video from multiple files


Video Concatenation

Join multiple video files to create a single sequence.

 

  • Combine sports highlights or action captured in sections
  • Create rough edits from rushes for daily review
  • Construct corporate video assets without editing software

At the point of ingest, simply navigate to the videos or drag and drop them onto the upload interface.

Imagen will detect you are preparing multiple media files for upload and provide a range of options, including the new video concatenation option:


 

+ Create multiple Imagen records each with a single media object

+ Create a single Imagen record containing multiple media objects

+ Join media together as a single media object


 

Files are joined in alphanumerical order.

You can also access the video concatenation feature through Imagen’s REST API interface.

Now you can quickly and easily stitch together a sequence of files to create one long video asset.

Concatenated files can be catalogued, played and annotated in the same way as any other media asset in your Imagen platform.
