About Cortex

Cortex is a digital asset management (DAM) software designed to help enterprises store, upload, arrange, share, and manage various types of media files in a centralized platform. Features include duplicate file detection, access control, audit log, unique ID codes, and real-time content publishing.

The application allows users to ingest, embed, extract, and display technical metadata such as encoding formats, bitrate, color space, and more. Managers can configure multiple ingest workflows, batch ingest metadata from external sources, track their status, and send progress reports via email. Cortex enables administrators to set up role-based permissions for users and remove access when their LDAP account is disabled.

Team members can collaborate, comment, review, approve, and establish ownership over assets. Cortex helps supervisors configure and send email alerts or reminders to users about task assignments. The software also offers integration with several third-party applications such as Salesforce CRM, Google Analytics, SAP, Mailchimp, Twitter, Microsoft Word, PayPal, Dropbox, and more.

Cortex has been able to meet the scale and speed demands for how our company works. Without the flexibility of the system and the ability to create multiple API workflows, we would not have been able to be as successful in keeping up with our asset production. The Orange Logic team behind Cortex was always eager to take on our challenges and find workable solutions.


In our case, we've been able to scale the Cortex to meet our business needs, quickly adjust settings as our workflows change, and use APIs to integrate the system with many of our other production workflow tools. We've achieve both scale and efficiencies thanks to the flexibility of Cortex.


Along with the flexibility that allowed us to achieve our scale and efficiency, that same flexibility can become complex if it's not planned out properly. It's tempting to do too much too quickly but a more manageable approach is to implement additional functionality in phases that build upon each other.
