Save Precious Time

Downloading and re-uploading large files into storage can take hours. Instead, automate the process with MASV’s straight-to-iconik ingest.

Avoid Extra Admin Work

When you connect your iconik storage to a MASV Portal, contributors don’t need iconik credentials to upload files.


Easily Sync Metadata

Want to simplify asset management? Add custom fields to your MASV upload form to collect metadata that syncs with iconik.

The Challenge:

I need a secure way for those outside my organization to contribute to my iconik collection.

Iconik is one of the best tools available for video teams to gather and organize media assets from any storage location in one place, and it is a crucial part of many major creative workflows.

To add assets to an iconik collection, users are required to have a paid account, which makes it difficult to collaborate with outside contributors, such as freelancers or contracted production companies.

To make it easier to work together with other teams, iconik users can use MASV to receive files from anyone and add them to a collection, even if those people don’t have an iconik account.

The Solution:

MASV’s iconik integration: The easy and secure way to collect assets in iconik.

Rather than requiring collaborators to create accounts, MASV makes it easy to collect media from external parties into iconik, without login credentials.

That means your contributors don’t need access to your iconik account or your MASV account to upload files.
