MediaBeacon

Storage, Backups & Hosting, Web & Mobile App Development

Keep your digital assets within reach.

MediaBeacon is a central service for easily organizing, storing and browsing media assets, such as logos, backgrounds, textures and photographs, produced at Duke. It provides a visual browsing system, advanced search capabilities, and share functionality.

The issues inherent with using multiple local hard drives to store large files -- including loss and damage -- are eliminated. Between MediaBeacon's web application and OIT’s secure, centralized storage, you will easily be able to find specific projects and files to reference and/or reuse, freeing up space on your local hard drive. In addition, OIT’s storage is regularly backed up, allowing you to access your department’s media assets even if an employee leaves Duke.  

Upcoming plans include integrating MediaBeacon directly with other systems used at Duke including Sakai, WebDAM, Warpwire, Panopto, DukeFlyer, Facebook, YouTube and more.
