Strengths: # Works for multiple users across a network
# Controls access to media content by user roles
# Audits files. It’s easy to find out who’s made what changes to your content – and why
# Version Control. You’ll never have to lose a good idea again through someone overwriting your file edits
# Multiple catalogs can be opened simultaneously as web-browser pages. Photos can easily be moved between catalogs
# All information about media files is described by tags. Tags are automatically synced with file metadata without user interference. You work with a small set of tags (~20-30), do your primary job and don’t have to worry about metadata
# Advanced Search enable s you to locate assets with virtually any set of query parameters (more than 100 properties) in conjunction with boolean And/Or operations and a set of conditions like: "Contains", "Starts with", "Matches", etc.

# Support for hierarchical tags, with no limitation on nesting levels: categories, people, place, keywords, event…
# Besides Photo and Video formats, Daminion supports PDF, BMP, PSD, PNG, GIF, and Audio formats. Vector and Office format support will be added soon

Weaknesses: # For Windows Only (not Mac version)

Daminion Software (former PicaJet.com) has released a new version of its server based photo management solution for creative pros and small teams.
Powerful search capabilities provide immediate access to assets of all types, including multimedia and other documents. Daminion is able to easily locate digital images, videos, and documents using a range of criteria, including categories, keywords, camera lens, color labels, rating and creation date. Content can be filtered withover 30 tags in combination with AND/OR operators.
At the heart of the program is its ability to store data inside of media files, including copyright information. All image descriptions are stored inside the relevant files as metadata. Whenever users copy, email, or publish their images, videos, or documents, all of the file information is transferred along with the files. This protects asset ownership and copyright. Without the use of metadata, the potential for lost assets is higher – if unmarked, assets may beinvisible to searches and more vulnerable to misuse.
