Library Manager Feature Demos

 

 

Introduction

Library Manager is our cloud-based content management system. It offers fast, secure access through the same powerful search and preview engines that have made Thought Equity Motion such a success in the Footage business, but focused more on the needs of individual content owners and managers. Many of the core functions that exist on the Thought Equity Motion footage gallery carry over to Library Manager. Users can search for content, create bins, edit metadata, and share content. From there, the differences become more pronounced. A Library Manager client has the ability to download or deliver any amount of their content at will. There are online downloads available, but also FTP targets for delivery, and coming soon there will be Aspera delivery options. In addition our Library Manager customers can choose any of our myriad transcoding targets (formats and file types) without hindering the industry leading speed to delivery.

Library Manager customers also have flexibility in controlling their own metadata. With unique editing tools in hand, they can develop their own metadata standard for internal or third-party use, and then implement themselves or utilize our talented metadata services team to curate at a fraction of the cost of employing dedicated resources in-house. Once created, our metadata is highly accessible and optimized for search either right on site or even through our robust API service. Like the rest of our Platform, the API is terribly simple to get started with but deeply functional for the advanced user.

The feature descriptions and demos that follow are all intended to be standalone. The following feature descriptions are from our most recent software releases. Come back to this page often as we will publish new walkthroughs at the top of the page as the features get released. If you have additional questions, please contact your account rep or go to platform.thoughtequity.com to learn about how to make your content more intelligent.
 

 

Deep Timeline Search

Other searches in TE.com give users the ability to refine content sets at the asset level to find what they are looking for. In the world of long form, that is more difficult. Scanning through an hour long TV show, a two-hour movie, or a five-hour tennis match to find a particular facet is cumbersome, to say the least. Timeline search allows users to look deep into the chronological metadata of a longform asset from the clip details page.

 

 

Saved Search

You can find the Saved Search function inside the existing Saved Filters tool. From any search results page, just click on “Filter Sets”. This is where you manage all saved strings.

The idea behind Saved Search is that any set of content with any combination of qualities can be accessed through a combination of search terms and filter sets. You can enter any keywords or field:value searches (like owner:name or ingested:[-30]), or even lists of clip ids. The combination can be used to organize groups of content for easy access without having to create a bin. Or it can be refined into other groupings over time just by saving more filter sets with keywords.

List View

Sometimes referred to as Related Assets, the List View is a display tool that lets you see relationships between content from the same family. We use relationships in our clip names to build this view, and then there are additional metadata fields that help shape deeper layers of categorization and importance.

 

 

Related Documents Management

Otherwise known as Ancillary Documents, this feature is a mechanism for uploading, storing, and downloading or linking to a document (or set of documents) associated with a particular asset. Currently, you can upload and store word processing docs, spreadsheets, text files, or PDFs. Once in the system they are given a URL and made downloadable to anyone with the permissions to see or edit them. They can also be accessed on the Clip Details page of the same asset.
