Digital Asset Management is an emerging business for tele- communication companies, especially when applied to the entertainment market. Current implementations try to overcome the integration needs from each actor participating in the business processes by using Enterprise Application Integration. Triple Space is a space-based communication infrastructure which provides semantic mediation between actors involved in a dialogue.

This paper presents a Digital Asset Management use case in which Triple Space will be applied to fulfill the inherent needs of this business domain through the use of this new semantic communication paradigm.
