Digital asset management and a page by page view of documents

11th May 2015

We’re used to thinking of digital assets as single items, i.e. an image, a video, a PDF and so on. But a PDF or a Word document might have many pages, tens or hundreds perhaps, and can they be easily uploaded and presented to users in a simple page by page format suitable for reading?

Digital asset management and a page by page view of documents

Yes. With an iBase digital asset management system it’s very easy indeed, just upload the file in the usual way and the DAM will do the rest automatically.

  • A thumb image of the first page is created for gallery displays.
  • A larger image of the first page is created which is big enough to convey at least an impression of the contents.
  • A page number index is created.
  • Navigation to next and previous page.
  • Go to any page number within the document.

Here are some live examples –

  • On our DAM demonstration site here are just a couple of pages in this two page PDF – for the pages view click either the image or the View Pages button.
  • Or an entire book – again for the pages view click either the image or the View Pages button.
  • San Diego State University’s – digital collections DAM system – just search for PDF and plenty of examples will be found.
  • World Rugby Multi-media digital asset management. Or search for PDF and other examples will be found.

No matter how many pages you have – two or two thousand – an iBase Trinity digital asset management system will quickly and easily create a page by page screen readable version.
