During everyday operations, data handling often gives rise to duplicates. While digital media asset management is designed to prevent this, they cannot be completely avoided in practice. It therefore makes sense to check the system regularly for duplicates. MAM in the 4ALLPORTAL can assist you with this in a number of ways.
4ALLPORTAL can read the so-called ‘file hash’ of every saved asset, for instance. This is a value calculated from the individual content of an asset and is unique to each asset. Files containing identical content will therefore have the same hash value, making them duplicates. By creating a metadata field with the relevant asset hash value, you can then find all duplicates. In tile or list view, you can sort assets by hash value to display all the duplicates one after the other.
