About

This module provides an integration between the NETX Digital Asset Management (DAM) System and the Drupal Content Management System. The module makes it easy for NetX users in managing their digital assets in the content management system. Digital assets will be synchronized to Drupal as “file entities” with asset meta data such as AssetID, Name, Description, File Size, Format, etc. Instead of syncing the file to Drupal, the integration module aims to only synchronize a “preview” derivative of the asset when possible. This can be an image thumbnail, a video preview image, etc.

The integration module will utilize Drupal’s file streamwrapper to create new URIs for NETX digital assets and serve them directly from NETX or associated CDNs.
