Adobe Scene7 is a hosted solution for managing, enhancing, publishing, and delivering rich media assets to Web, mobile, email, and Internet-connected displays and print.

You can view AEM assets published in Scene7 in various viewers:

  • Zoom
  • Flyout
  • Video
  • Image Template
  • Image
You can publish digital assets directly from AEM to Scene7 and you can publish digital assets from Scene7 to AEM. 
This document describes how to publish digital assets from AEM to Scene7 and vice versa. Viewers are also described in detail. For information on configuring AEM for Scene7, see Integrating Scene7 with AEM
For more information on using video components with AEM, see the following:


If Scene7 assets do not display properly, please make sure that Dynamic media is disabled and then refresh the page.

Manually Publishing to Scene7 from Assets


AEM publishes to Scene7 asynchronously. After you click Publish, it may take several seconds for your asset to publish to Scene7.


Scene7 Components

The following Scene7 components are available in AEM:

  • Zoom
  • Flyout (Zoom)
  • Image Template
  • Image
  • Video


These components are not available by default and need to be selected in Design mode before using.

After they are made available in Design mode, you can add the components to your page like any other AEM component. Assets that have not yet been published to Scene7 are published to Scene7 if in a synchronized folder or on a page or with a Scene7 cloud configuration.


If you are creating and developing custom S7 viewers and using the Content Finder, you need to explicity add the allowfullscreen parameter.

Flash Viewers End-of-Life Notice

Effective January 31, 2017, Adobe Scene7 will officially end-of-life support for the Flash viewer platform.

For more information about this important change, see Flash Viewer End-of-Life FAQs.

Adding a Scene7 Component to a Page

Adding a Scene7 component to a page is the same as adding a component to any page. Scene7 components are described in detail in the following sections.

To add a Scene7 component/viewer to a page in the touch-optimized UI:

  1. In AEM, open the page where you want to add the Scene7 component.

  2. If no Scene7 components are available, click Design mode, tap/click any component with a blue border, click the Parent icon, and then the Configuration icon. In Parsys (Design), select all the Scene7 components to make them available and click OK.

  3. Click Edit to return to Edit mode.

  4. Drag a component from the Scene7 group in the sidekick onto the page in the desired location.

  5. Click the Configuration icon to open the component.

  6. Edit the component as necessary and click OK to save changes.

  7. Drag your image or video from the content browser onto the Scene7 component you added to the page.


    In touch UI only, you must drag and drop the image or video onto the Scene7 component you placed on the page. Selecting and editing the Scene7 component and then choosing the asset is not supported.

Adding interactive viewing experiences to a responsive website

Responsive design for your assets means that your assets adapts depending on where it is displayed. With responsive design, the same assets can be effectively displayed on multiple devices.

See also Responsive Design for Web Pages.

To add an interactive viewing experience to a responsive site in the touch-optimized UI:

  1. Log in to AEM, and ensure that you have configured Adobe Scene7 Cloud Services and that Scene7 components are available. 


    If Scene7 WCM components are not available, be sure to enable them via Design mode.

  2. In a website with the Scene7 components enabled, drag an Image component to the page.

  3. Select the component and tap or click the configuration icon.

  4. In the Scene7 Settings tab, adjust the breakpoints.

  5. Confirm that the viewers are responsively resizing and that all interactions are optimized for desktop, tablet, and mobile.

Settings common to all Scene7 components

Although configuration options vary, the following are common to all Scene7 components:

  • File Reference - Browse to a file that you want to reference. File reference shows the asset URL and not necessarily the full Scene7 URL including the URL commands and parameters. You cannot add Scene7 URL commands and parameters in this field. They have to be added through the corresponding functionality in the component.
  • Width - Lets you set the width.
  • Height - Lets you set the height.

You set these configuration options by opening (double-clicking) a Scene7 component, for example, when you open a Zoom component:



The HTML5 Zoom component displays a larger image when you press the + button.

The asset has zoom tools at the bottom. Click + to enlarge. Click - to reduce. Clicking the x or the reset zoom arrow brings the image back to the original size it was imported as. Click the diagonal arrows to make it full screen. Click Edit to configure the component. With this component, you can configure settings common to all Scene7 components.



In the HTML5 Flyout component, the asset is shown as split screen; left the asset in the specified size; right the zoom portion is displayed. Click Edit to configure the component. With this component, you can configure settings common to all Scene7 components.


If your Flyout component uses a custom size, then that custom size is used and responsive setup of the component is disabled.

If your Flyout component uses the default size, as set in the Design view, then the default size is used and the component stretches to accomodate the page layout size with responsive setup of the component enabled. Be aware, however, that there is a limitation on responsive setup of the component. When the you use the Flyout component with responsive setup, you should not use it with full page stretch. Otherwise, the Flyout may extend beyond the page's right border.



The Scene7 Image component lets you add Scene7 functionality to your images, such as Scene7 modifiers, image or viewer presets, and sharpening. The Scene7 image component is similar to other image components in AEM with special Scene7 functionality. In this example, the image has the Scene7 URL modifier, &op_invert=1 applied.


Title, Alt Text

In the Advanced tab, add a title to the image and alt text for those users who have graphics turned off.

URL, Open in

You can set an asset from to open a link. Set the URL and in Open in indicate whether you want it to open in the same window or a new window.


Viewer preset

Select an existing viewer preset from the drop-down menu. If the viewer preset you are looking for is not visible, you may need to make it visible. See Managing Viewer Presets. You cannot select a viewer preset if you are using an image preset and vice versa.

Scene7 Configuration

Select the Scene7 configuration you want to use to fetch active image presets from the SPS.

Image preset

Select an existing image preset from the drop-down menu. If the image preset you are looking for is not visible, you may need to make it visible. See Managing Image Presets. You cannot select a viewer preset if you are using an image preset and vice versa.

Output Format

Select the output format of the image, for example jpeg. Depending on the output format you select, you may have additional configuration options. See Image Preset best practices.


Select how you want to sharpen the image. Sharpening is explained in detail in Image Preset best practices and Sharpening best practices.

URL Modifiers

You can change image effects by supplying additional S7 image commands. These are described in Image Presets and the Command reference.


If your website is responsive, you want to adjust the breakpoints. Breakpoints must be separated by commas (,).

Image Template

Scene7 Image Templates are layered Photoshop content that was imported to Scene7, where content and properties were parameterized for variability. The Image template component lets you import images and change the text dynamically in AEM. In addition, you can configure the Image template component to use values from client context, so that each user experiences the image in a personalized way.

Click Edit to configure the component. You can configure settings common to all Scene7 components as well as other settings described in this section.


File Reference, Width, Height


Scene7 URL commands and parameters cannot be added to the File Reference URL directly. They can only be defined in the component UI in the Parameter panel.

Title, Alt Text

In the Scene7 Image Template tab, add a title to the image and alt text for those users who have graphics turned off.

URL, Open in

You can set an asset from to open a link. Set the URL and in Open in indicate whether you want it to open in the same window or a new window.


Parameter Panel

When importing an image, the parameters are pre-populated with information from the image. If there is no content that can be dynamically changed, this window is empty.


Changing text dynamically

To change the text dynamically, enter new text in the fields and click OK. In this example, the Price is now $50 and shipping is 99 cents.


The text in the image changes. You can reset the text back to the original value by clicking Reset next to the field.


Changing text to reflect the value of a client context value

To link a field to a client context value, click Select to open the client-context menu, select the client context, and click OK. In this example, the name changes based on linking the Name with the formatted name in the profile.


The text reflects the name of the currently logged in user. You can reset the text back to the original value by clicking Reset next to the field.


To make the Scene7 image template component a clickable link:

  1. On the page with the Scene7 image template component, click Edit.

  2. In the URL field, enter the URL that users go to when the image is clicked. In the Open in field, select whether you want the target to open (a new window or same window). 

  3. Click OK.

Video component

The Scene7 Video component (available from the Scene7 section of the sidekick) uses device and bandwidth detection to serve the right video to each screen. This component is an HTML5 video player; it is a single viewer that can be used cross channel.

It can be used for adaptive video sets, a single MP4 video, or a single F4V video. 

See Video for more information on how videos work with Scene7 integration. In addition, see how the Scene7 video component compares to the foundation video component


Known limitations for the video component

Adobe DAM and WCM shows if a master video is uploaded. They do not show these proxy assets:

  • Scene7 encoded renditions
  • Scene7 adaptive video sets

When using an adaptive video set with the Scene7 video component, the component will need to resized to fit he dimensions of the video.

Excluding master videos from adaptive video sets

Scene7 Content Browser

The Scene7 content browser lets you view content from Scene7 directly in AEM. To access the content browser, in the Content Finder, select Scene7 in the touch-optimized user interface or the S7 icon in the classic user interface. Functionality is identical between both user interfaces.

If you have multiple configurations, AEM by default displays the default configuration. You can select different configurations directly in the Scene7 content browser in the drop-down menu.


  • Assets located in the ad-hoc folder will not appear in the Scene7 content browser.
  • When Secure Preview is enabled, both published and unpublished assets on Scene7 do appear in the Scene7 content browser.
  • If you do not see Scene7 or the S7 icon as an option in the content browser, you need to configure Scene7 to work with AEM.
  • For video, the Scene7 content browser supports:
    • Adaptive Video Sets: container of all video renditions needed for seamless playback across multiple screens
    • Single MP4 video 
    • Single F4V video 

Browsing content in the Touch-optimized UI

You can access the content browser either in the touch-optimized or classic UI. Currently the touch-optimized has the following limitation:

  • FXG and Flash assets from Scene7 are not supported. 

Browse Scene7 assets by selecting Scene7 from the third drop-down menu. Scene7 does not appear in the list if you have not configured Scene7/AEM integration.


  • The Scene7 content browser loads about 100 assets and sorts them by name. 
  • If you have a secure preview server set, the browser will use that preview server to render thumbnails and assets.


In addition, you can browse resolution information, size, days since modification, and file name by hovering over the asset in the browser.

  • For Adaptive Video Sets and Templates, no size information is generated for thumbnails.
  • For Adaptive Video Sets, no resolution is generated for thumbnails.

Searching for Scene7 assets with the content browser

Searching for Scene7 assets is similar to searching AEM assets except that when you search you are actually seeing a remote view of the assets in the Scene7 system, rather than importing them directly into AEM.

You can use either the classic UI or the touch-optimized UI to both view and search for assets. Depending on the interface, how you search is slightly different. 

When searching in either UI, you can filter by the following criteria (shown here in the touch-optimized UI):

Enter keywords

You can search assets by name. When searching the keywords you enter is what the file name starts with. For example, typing the word "swimming" would look for any asset file names that start with those letters in that order. Be sure to click enter after you type the term to find the asset.



The name of the folder that appears is based on the configuration you have selected. You can drill down to lower levels by clicking the folder icon and selecting a sub-folder, then clicking the checkmark to select it.

If you enter a keyword and select a folder, AEM searches that folder and any sub-folders. However, if you do not enter any keywords when searching, selecting the folder will only show the assets in that folder and will not include any subfolders.

By default, AEM searches the folder selected and all sub-folders.


Type of Asset

Select Scene7 to browse Scene7 content. This option is only available if Scene7 has been configured.



If you have more than one Scene7 configuration defined in Cloud Services, you can select it here. As a result the folder will change based on the configuration you have chosen.


Asset type

Within the Scene7 browser, you can filter results to include any of the following: images, templates, videos, and adaptive video sets. If you do not select any asset type, AEM by default searches all asset types.



  • In the classic UI, you can also search for Flash and FXG. Filtering for these in the touch-optimized UI is currently not supported.
  • When searching video, you are searching a single rendition. Results return the original rendition (only *.mp4) and the encoded rendition.
  • When searching an adaptive video set, you are searching the the folder and all sub-folders but only if you have added a keyword to the search. If you have not added a keyword, AEM does not search the sub-folders.

Publish Status

You can filter for assets based on publication status: Unpublished or Published. If you do not select any Publish Status, AEM by default searches all publish statuses.
