  • Patent number: 10769248
    Abstract: A central asset registry and associated satellite registries tie Digital Asset Management (DAM) repositories and satellite repositories into a unified enterprise system. The system removes rights and asset relationship tracking from the DAMs and the satellites by gathering asset metadata tags and capturing digital asset rights and relationships between assets to improve speed, scalability, and flexibility in analyzing and traversing networks of rights and relationships of digital assets. The central asset registry and the satellite registries use a pluggable architecture and track and store multi-dimensional relationships as an asset hierarchy. The asset hierarchy and rights model depicts rights and relationship data between the assets and provides a flexible array of asset types and properties for addition of new assets, new asset types, and new rights without re-factoring the other data, nodes, and edges. The system uses asset metadata to create edge relationships between the assets.

The asset hierarchy provides a depiction of relationship data between the assets and provides a flexible array of asset types and properties that allows the addition of new assets and new asset types without re-factoring the other data, nodes, and edges. The system also uses asset metadata to create edge relationships between the assets. The central asset registry facilitates queries and retrieval of the media assets.
