Asset types

Sitecore Content Hub generically refers to digital asset entities, such as images, videos, or files, as assets. The Sitecore Digital Asset Management (DAM) module supports several asset media types.

You can perform most default operations (such as create public link, delete, or create draft) on all asset types. For specific asset types, such as video or archive, additional operations are available.

The following table lists the asset media types in Sitecore DAM and their supported media formats.
