Quincy, MA, June 19– The North of Boston Media Group has selected the Merlin Hosted Digital Asset Management System to seamlessly organize their photos and videos from both print and website production. The media group properties include publications such as The Eagle-Tribune, The Salem News, The Daily News of Newburyport and the Gloucester Daily Times.
Merlin will serve as the publications’ budgeting tool, picture desk and archive; a repository of local photographers’ images and videos. Legacy content will be migrated as part of the move to the hosted environment.
