"We have all been very, very pleased with the system. It is close to ideal for our needs, and it has generated wide interest and excitement among many of our clients."James Lide, History Associates
"It makes such a difference to know that you have good support at the end of a telephone line or email service."Ann Neilson, University of the Highlands and Islands
"Third Light is a sound platform with the best customer and technical support of any software I've used. This shouldn't be understated! It's what any software should be... but I've struggled in my 8+ years to find DAM software that actually works properly. Third Light Support is always responsive, extremely knowledgable, and can provide both technical and creative solutions."Matthew - Digital Asset Manager - G2Crowd Review
"The whole system is really easy to use - both as an admin and a user. Users are asking way less questions re help than before, which means it is simple to use and easy to understand... which is great! I would happily recommend Third Light to anyone looking for this kind of service."Rachel - Corporate Affairs & Marketing Co-ordinator - G2 Review
"We have a true cross-platform collaboration tool. Our customers are impressed by the level of sophistication presented by our DAM as they work with their catalogues of images. The customer support we receive from Third Light is exceptional. They are always timely with responses, and have yet to leave a question unanswered."Eric Newsome, Historic Images
"ThirdLight's new platform, Chorus, is super easy to navigate and visually it is very user friendly. It's worked well for our medium-sized charity and I would highly recommend it. The expired image banner functionality has has really positive feedback with our colleagues, particularly as we work with image consent forms."Administrator in Civic & Social Organization (51-1000 emp.) - G2 Review
"Handles video (especially professional video formats) better than any system we've tested (and that includes over 50 DAM solutions). Also handles virtually any other file format used in creative environments. Customer service is superb."Chris - VP & Creative Director - G2 Review
"The software is simple, well documented and intuitive. From our initial evaluation of Chorus to onboarding and getting everything set up, the Third Light team is clearly dedicated to the quality of their products and the success of their customers. Chorus is well designed from a user standpoint without being bloated with extra features. Instead of trying to do everything, it's streamlined and focused on how we operate day to day and what it does, it does well. With the additional API module we're able to run custom scripts and integrate it with our other workflows in clever ways."Russ - Senior Staff Environmental Artist - G2 Review
"The software is so easy to use and the functionality is great. My customers get their images right away and can download in any format. "Kathy Stevenson, Avery
"Two things I love about third light. First: the team. Unlike many other providers in the space, you get to speak to real humans who genuinely care. This immediately elevates the experience. Secondly, the software itself - we have a whooooole bunch of files, and the thing that really elevates Third Light is it's ease of use, particularly when delving through large swathes of files."Joe - SME user - G2 Review
Photography, video, audio and graphics are centralized and manageable with minimal admin. Smart metadata and unrivalled search combine to make files instantly retrievable - even among millions of high-resolution assets.
Chorus removes the barriers between your people and the media they need to do their work. Built-in cropping and formatting tools mean every one of your users can find and prepare content for publishing with next to no assistance.
It's quick and easy to provide promotional material for your partners' self service. Trackable, customizable, public-facing content banks can be configured to balance your marketing objectives with security requirements.
"Being able to run custom metadata reports has been a huge benefit for how ITV manages its images archive. With Third Light’s media library, when we upload a photo the team is able to do a bulk metadata edit about the TV show it went out on, the date it went out on, and the platform generates a spreadsheet based on this, saving the team valuable time."

Our clients use it to deliver all sorts of media packs, marketing bundles and video content for syndication - everything from promotional content to electronic programme guides. You can use the search engine and smart metadata to search through millions of files, and organize them into folder hierarchies. We've made it so you can share common folders as well as special selections for individual customers (including using a fast content delivery network, or CDN).
The combination of auto-complete searching and cascading metadata features mean broadcasters can search huge volume of assets and get instant accurate results. The derivatives tool allows you to crop and reformat images quickly and easily without creative software. And if you need to distribute assets or promotional material with external partners, you can use Chorus’s published links which are branded hubs that can be password-protected or fully open.
We've deployed Chorus sites containing many millions of files, with hundreds of terabytes of storage. From small sites with mainly images up to large, video-heavy systems accessed around the world, it's part of our expertise to buid resilient and scalable systems that are ready for demanding users.
Chorus can be hosted on your own servers and network, or we can be involved in the management of your servers in our data center or with a cloud provider. Please get in touch to discuss a package tailored to your needs.
