The technology deployed has allowed artists on different sites to work as if they were in one place. The update of the remote sites was done in a few minutes average.Jean-Michel Spiner

We use the Damas technology from PRIMCODE to successfully complete the production of our TV series in an effective way for the last 4 years. The 3D assets are tracked all productions long from our studios in Paris and from our producers, to our contractors on different continents. The assets are created on each site and are automatically delivered to the other sites in an easy and configurable manner, with version control. No more FTP or email, the tracked assets are sent and received automatically when they get updated on any side. These systems proved to be very reliable throughout the whole productions, and the different participants remotely work very easily together. The system is open and the API allowed us to program our own Qt user interface for Maya to allow the artists to browse the assets and directly publish their work from MayaStéphane Hoarau

The tracker is a programmable web service allowing to publish, to view and to administrate the synchronization of the connected sites.
- Multi-users, API (Python, JS, curl) and CLI
- Handles packs of files and priorities
- Private and secure
The sites share a local file storage through their Internet link and the rsync protocol.
- Located in a business or in a datacenter
- Make your site visible to a tracker of your choice
The Damas server is the programmable web service used in many 3D content creation projects, Free software with open source license from 2013. This is the version without the file synchronization service. It allows to build a digital asset management pipeline from scratch. damas-software.org
