We are excited to unveil the New User Interface for Filerobot: The Asset Hub. You can start enjoying it by connecting to the new admin page here using your usual identification method (SSO or email). Let us know what you think!

Admin Console

  • (SR) UX & UI Improvements

You can now decide on and directly see the token's personalized name in the admin interface, while the copying button still copies the token actual value/name. The token selector is now searchable to ease the management of various environments you would have. Also, if you registered a bank card with us, you can click a button to directly pay an invoice. Check it out and let us know what you think!

  • (SR) Advanced filtering system

The Asset Hub's new filtering system will be able to find the needle in the haystack! You have the opportunity to filter by file name, size, creation or modification date and tags, but also by image style, orientation, resolution, number of faces, and many more. Try it out and tel us what you would need as a filter, we will be glad to add it.

  • (SR) Find duplicate(s).

This feature will allow you to easily identify duplicated media or assets in your library, with the ability to see how many there are in total, their location in the library, and access them directly if needed. This is the first step towards a more complex feature that will identify similar assets in the library. Doc here.

Plugins & Integrations

  • (SR) Video transcoding for adaptive streaming.

Filerobot now compresses on the fly your high resolution videos so they can be distributed using adaptive streaming. The videos load with the best quality possible, according to the end-user's player and connexion bandwidth. Doc here.

  • (SR) New Tagging system.

The new taxonomy system is a more flexible, more configurable tag bank that will allow to easily establish relevant relationship between assets, and will be more forgiving for fuzzy search. It also comes with a native multi-language compatibility and translation. Doc here.

  • (SR) New Filerobot Media Widget.

We updated the uploader widget to a brand new version, hence the name change to better reflect the major evolution in functionalities. Demo here.

With the latest version embedded in the Asset Hub, the Filerobot Uploader received few UI/UX enhancements like the listing view having thumbnails. Doc here.

API Framework

  • (BT) NEW multi-api hub

In order to remove the hassle of searching for our AI & ML tools, we gathered them in one convenient place, so you can test them, learn how to call them directly via API, while of course still be able to use them directly from within the AssetHub. New functions like Background Removal, Face Count or Identify Dominant Color have been added to the growing collection. Check it out and let us know what you need next! Doc and demo here.
