DAM, MAM, PAM…maybe you’ve heard these terms pop up in everyday business jargon. But have you ever stopped to think about what they stand for?
Many times, they are used interchangeably, causing confusion among even those who use these platforms on a daily basis. Whether you’re a Marketing or Media Asset Manager, CTO, Video Producer, Documentalist, etc. it’s hard to keep up with constantly evolving media asset management platforms and technologies.
The Organization of American States is the world’s oldest regional organization, dating back to the First International Conference of American States, held in Washington, D.C., from October 1889 to April 1890. That meeting approved the establishment of the International Union of American Republics, and the stage was set for the weaving of a web of provisions and institutions that came to be known as the inter-American system, the oldest international institutional system.
Today, the OAS brings together all 35 independent states of the Americas and constitutes the main political, juridical, and social governmental forum in the Hemisphere. In addition, it has granted permanent observer status to 69 states, as well as to the European Union (EU). The Organization uses a four-pronged approach to effectively implement its essential purposes, based on its main pillars: democracy, human rights, security, and development.
Miami Beach, Florida — At the New World Symphony, we had a problem. We had years of content, thousands of video recordings and images of the academy, faculty and guest artists in action, but there was no way for us to access it for either educational or marketing purposes.
From the beginning, our Fellows have been working with leaders in the classical world, and these interactions are invaluable. We’ve taken countless pictures and recorded a lot of audio and video, but we had no way to put these assets to use because they were difficult to catalog and locate as needed. A video clip of a master class with a visiting faculty member can be a powerful teaching tool for years to come.
Another challenge I kept hearing from our marketing team was their need to put together multimedia presentations for fundraisers or to share with patrons and media outlets, showing how the New World Symphony has helped our Fellows get to their next steps in life.
