You might also want to take a look at Spotlight, a Blacklight-based plugin for showcasing digital objects in a structured presentation, along with commentary, narrative and whizzy page features (like carousels, media players, etc.) It's just about to have its 0.1 release (expected this month) so it's very early, but other than that I think you'll find it has some Omeka-like features, along with very good integration with the Blacklight-Hydra-Fedora stack, and a strong prospective user base from those communities, and all the Hydra-Fedora goodness of a full DAM solution.

There will be a Spotlight preso at Open Repositories 2014 next week, which will serve as a public debut of a first Spotlight app.
