Simpleview DAM New Features and Resources: July 6, 2021

Simpleview recently made updates to the Simpleview DAM. These changes were available Tuesday, July 6, 2021, in North & South America, Europe and Africa. Customers in Australia and Asia received the changes on Wednesday, July 7, 2021.

New Features and Enhancements

High-Resolution Thumbnails

Thumbnails for Documents and Videos are now displayed in high-resolution. Similar to the Image high-resolution thumbnails, these files will only be visible in the new Data Asset Manager User Interface (DAM UI).

For any new document uploads, high-resolution thumbnails will be available for files with the following extensions: .gif, .png, .bmp, .eps, .ai, .pdf.

For Videos, DAM displays the thumbnails from Vimeo. This is so they more closely resemble the video’s embed screen.


Thumbnails for existing Document and Video uploads will be built over time and may not show as high-resolution immediately.

Resolved Issues

  • The Review Grid for “User Download Requests“ view now allows sorting on DAM Id.

  • In the legacy UI, the DAM now displays a generic icon for documents, if the associated thumbnail is missing. This may occur with documents that generate custom thumbnails such as .pdf, .png, etc.
