NBCU Case Study

Image editing & file management

During this session I will be discussing how we handle images across multiple brands at NBCU. I will focus on two main areas: first, the editorial experience of uploading and manging images; and second, the challenges of hosting images (in some cases very large quantities of images) across multiple web fronts on multiple platforms. I will discuss how we have attempted to solve some of these challenges from both a technical and UX point of view. Additionally I will discuss what challenges we may have to face in the future as well as some of the emerging technologies that we are considering that might be able to help.
