Improvements for the current media/asset-managment modules

Improvements for the or a selected existing "media-/asset-managment"-module.

Current solutions are a good base for small sites but lack some essential features IMO for bigger solutions like e.g. intranet-solutions (e.g. file integration of external files stored on a NAS without a needed upload).

Unfortunately I am no programmer but I can provide support with UI, UX & Workflow-Design/Ideas. I am also Betatester for Adobe and know all current solutions which work very well as desktop apps.

So despite the fact that we have three (Media, Asset, Scald), you want someone to write a fourth one?
Bad idea, and well beyond the scope of GSoC (those are huge projects).

A specific idea to extend Scald or Media (or whatever your favorite flavor is, mine is Scald) in a specific way is the only way to get traction here.

Agree with bojanz. All three

Agree with bojanz. All three modules are OK, but lack some functionality. It would be better to work on existing solutions to make them awesome IMO.

Of course I totally agree with you !!! Therefore I changed the title. Do you think that´s a better description?

The big question is which module to choose?

I don´t really understand from the technical view why there are 3 so different modules or how they are so different?

All in all I would love some new features which should then work for all these existing modules? Do you think this is possible?

Simply history reasons.

Simply history reasons. Multiple people wanted to solve this problem and they started to work on different solutions.

Time will show which one will become standard solution.....

SCALD/ ASSET/ Media. Concentrated efforts on one may be of value?
