The Ixxus Digital Media Annotator (DMA) is an interactive online tool designed to make the creative more collaborative. A powerful annotation module integrated into Alfresco, the DMA allows users across multiple locations to work together in real-time to review, annotate and manage digital media files. 


  • Powerful digital annotation: No more need for illegible handwritten comments, large email attachments or ambiguity. DMA provides a variety of tools, including highlight, text, block area, pen and quote tool.
  • Real-time collaboration: Review as a team by drawing directly onto digital media files in real-time, and pause on any frame of a video for synchronized review.
  • Multi-format capability:  DMA handles images, video, audio, vector graphics, Adobe PDF, Microsoft Office and Open Office files – and is mobile and tablet compatible, so you can collaborate on-the-go.
  • Automated workflows: As an integrated Alfresco module, annotation takes place within an Alfresco workflow, streamlining the authoring process by making it easy to monitor and track tasks.
  • Instant deployment: DMA can be fully operational on a standard Alfresco deployment with as little as ten days integration time.
