Store, describe and search


Phoboss is a powerful digital asset management system, integrated with Hubert, that allows you to store your photos and movies, add descriptions automatically or semi-automatically using a flexible keyword system and then apply them within the production process. Given that Phoboss and Hubert are integrated, it is an easy and efficient way to search for and link to images and Hubert-generated content.

Work from anywhere


The Phoboss System operates within a secure cloud data environment, allowing you to work from anywhere around the globe. Your company does not need to invest in expensive servers, configure complex VPNs or hire database administrators. You can upload your multimedia content, enrich it with all of the metadata you need and then utilise it from anywhere.

Rights management


The Phoboss System comes complete with a powerful multimedia IP rights management tool allowing you to check how a protected asset may be used in line with the IP owner’s rights. Phoboss and Hubert are integrated, so alerts will inform you about permitted or restricted conditions of use. And it works equally effectively even if you acquire the same IP asset from multiple sources.

No duplicates


As your company expands, so too do the number of IP assets and the problems posed by content duplication becomes more significant. The Phoboss System automatically detects similar images and groups them together to ensure that they share the same sets of metadata, which in practical terms means that re-duplication is avoided. That is why, instead of being presented with a series of duplicates following a search, you will be presented with one set of images. And given that Phoboss is serious about copyright, all of your rights remain protected in terms of how, where and when these grouped images may be used.

Visual metadata


One of the many special features of Phoboss is the option of being able to enrich the metadata associated with a given image using some clever visual-recognition technology. Thanks to our AI-based algorithms, the system can detect faces and other photographic features automatically. Phoboss enables you to store your preferred, predefined crops of selected images for use in your electronic or print publication. This additional metadata will allow you not only to retrieve the image whenever you wish, but to get the photo cropped and re-sized as required.
