The Defense Imagery Management Operations Center (DIMOC), as part of the Defense Visual Information (DVI) component of the Defense Media Activity, executes the operational management of visual information for Department of Defense components in support of U.S. military activities and operations.


The dimoc.mil website was activated as a portal for efficient video and still archiving, accessibility, and ingest capability in conjunction with the Defense Video and Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS). Users now have a central place from which to search imagery, send imagery, access VI resources and contact customer service.


DIMOC operates facilities in three locations:

  • The Joint Combat Camera Center (JCCC), located at Fort Meade, Maryland, coordinates the ingest of current still and motion imagery produced by DoD visual information professionals around the world. The JCCC also works with the Joint Staff and Combatant Commands to resolve transmission problems, coordinate operational guidance and provide support to deployed Combat Camera teams.

  • The VI Records Center, located in Riverside, California, provides DoD enterprise-level records management and maintains the DoD’s physical and digital imagery archives. The Records Center also provides records distribution and the archival preservation of physical DoD-owned media, and is the funnel for DoD visual records to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

  • The VI Services Center, located at Tobyhanna Army Depot, Pennsylvania, coordinates DoD and public visual information customer fulfillment, and is the primary point of contact for DoD, Federal agencies, NATO partners and the American public for acquiring Defense Imagery products, programs and services. The Services Center also provides timely customer service relating to DVIDS, the Defense Information Server, and dimoc.mil.
