This metadata can be used to easily search your images and videos with keywords in the search engine, or to find the right assets for content syndication.

Keep copyright and licensing agreements attached to your assets within the HIVO digital asset management platform.


Automated Collections

With automated collections, users can create rules and automated workflows based on facial recognition, location, filetype and more. Then when new assets are uploaded into the Library, they will be automatically added into collections based on your rules.


Two-stage Asset Upload Approvals
