"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
"Our scientists are impressed and enthusiastic users of the Third Light library, thanks to its simple and intuitive format."Gerard Rooijakkers, Knowledge Centre Manager, Scion
"Design of the site is very contemporary and more modern compared to previous software offered by Thirdlight. Searching and refining searches in the site is much easier and much more obvious for the standard day-to-day users we have on our system. Navigation through site is great and was one of the first things our users noticed upon logging in. The pricing structure compared to rivals is very fair. We have over 300,000 assets on the site and searching is much quicker than it was on IMS which is fantastic for our users and saves a lot of time in the long-run."Jordon - Photography Coordinator - 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

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.
