The main functions for editorial users are cataloging, searching, retrieving, browsing, describing, segmenting, and repurposing. For technical staff, archiving, supervising, and monitoring are priorities.
The system interfaces with ingest, production, newsroom, storage and automation applications to streamline automatic take-on of high-resolution media and associated metadata.
Media can be enriched with additional specific metadata, which enables faster searches and better access to stored content.
The system provides a hierarchical organization of content. Various media such as audio, video, images, subtitles, transcription files, pdf are linked in a same entity. Several entities can be combined in one or several groups or sub-groups. Sets of metadata can be added at each hierarchical level.
A set of fully customizable 'widgets' gives quick access to the main features via a user profile. A flexible GUI enables each user to design its own interface layout and to set up its own search criteria or decide how the results will be displayed.
A dedicated interface allows users to supervise in real time all running processes. The system shows the status of most tasks performed by third party systems. The user is able to take actions on the running processes like quality control, check for metadata completion, modify priorities, start, and stop tasks. A TO DO list automatically notifies users of tasks to be performed.
