What’s the difference between VAM, DAM & MAM/MSC?

It’s easy to get lost in copious amounts of acronyms being thrown around within the industry. You are more than likely familiar with at least one or two, but might just have heard about the others. Understanding the difference between these asset management systems and picking the right one can make or break your content creation efforts:

  • DAM - Digital asset management
    DAM is great for managing brand and image assets. It’s mainly focused on managing already finished digital assets. Its functionalities include uploading, searching and transforming for a number of different formats. At times, DAM is used as an umbrella term which other more specialized asset management solutions sit under.
  • MAM - Media asset management
    MAM was traditionally focused on archiving and storage of video assets, but, being pioneered by the broadcast media, it was expanded to serve other functions including distribution of media. With the increase of business producing multimedia content, MAM have grown to accommodate a much wider array of needs.
  • VAM - Video asset management
    VAM, or as it’s often referred to VDAM (Video Digital Asset Management), is a subset of MAM. A MAM system includes additional advanced functions beyond the basic store and search functions to handle both pre- and post-production. For example: editing, collaboration, sharing and version tracking. VAM usually integrates within a larger MAM or DAM system, and enables direct uploading to distribution channels (such as YouTube or Vimeo).
