"The customer success team at Third Light is second to none. They consistently demonstrate the willingness to go the extra mile to make you feel confident and assured about Chorus. They evaluated our business challenges and propose solutions. Patient, personable and pro-active. They are also transparent about what's achievable i.e. they do not over-promise and under deliver."Harry - National Television Broadcaster (UK) - G2 Review
"Racingfotos.com came to Third Light in 2005 and have never looked backed since. Over the years its functionality has only increased and with it our trust in the product. Third Light has revolutionised our business, giving us far more control in the way our clients use our site. Third Light's team have been brilliant; listening and working with us to improve our business – a team we're glad to have on our side."Andy Watts, Racingfotos
"Very user friendly and easy to navigate your way around it, we can't imagine working without it as it is a very popular and trusted resource across our regional teams. The customer and IT support you get from the team at Third Light is also fantastic. It has been great value for money in allowing the company to share assets."Craig - Creative Lead EMEA - 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
"As a manager, I appreciate the reporting features – such as number of downloads each month, what the most popular files are, and who is uploading materials. The Third Light system's ability to not only upload and store raw video, but to also play it back, has increased the usage of our videos immeasurably. Our customer service calls have greatly decreased since implementing the Third Light server."Shawna Cronan, Digital Media Manager, Compassion International
"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
"The ease of searching for files allows us to work more efficiently on projects of all sizes. "Barb Pilarski, Pittsburgh Penguins
"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
"The platform is very user friendly. I can make the space I need within my organization with very few issues. If I ever have questions, there is someone there to answer them in a timely manner. Great product, great customer service!"Jessica - Creative Director, SME - G2 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
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."
Robert Waghorn, Senior Production Technology and Applications Manager - ITV StudiosRead case study
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.
