Iconik alternative


Iconik offers a good media management tool, with AI auto-tagging coupled with collaboration features like review and approval which make communications around the assets easy. Sharing is simple, putting you in control of who can access your media, with options to restrict downloading and commenting. Built on a hybrid cloud structure, Iconik allows for content to live anywhere and creates proxy files locally which can be pushed to the cloud. This means that the editing workflow is smooth, aided by an Iconik panel for Adobe where editors can find and add their assets, and push the final versions back to Iconik when they are ready. However, Iconik isn’t built for an event-based ecosystem like sports. Folder organisation can be a tedious task even when tagging is done automatically, and that is where Iconik takes a hit. Pricing for AI is also separate, which means that you have to prioritise content that you want to run AI on, rather than have all your teams detected at once. Their video collaboration is simple but efficient with review processes and some sharing abilities for internal and external teams.
