The Dsp-Ingest service is designed to streamline and optimize the process of ingesting and managing data within the DaSCH Service Platform.

It provides a RESTful API for the digital asset management.


Assets are the core of the Dsp-Ingest service. They can be different sort of files, like: images, videos, audios, etc. For each asset, the service stores the metadata, its original file and possibly derivative files such as keyframes for videos.

Assets are identified by a unique identifier, the internal_filename, eg. 100W6vpQQtG-Fk81LUxUheF.jp2.

Types of Assets

The service supports different types of assets:

  • Images
  • Videos
  • Audio files
  • Excel files
  • PDF files
  • And others in binary format

The supported file formats are explained in detail in the DSP-API documentation.


Assets are group within projects. A project is a collection of assets and corresponds to a project in the DSP-API.
