"The ease of searching for files allows us to work more efficiently on projects of all sizes. "Barb Pilarski, Pittsburgh Penguins
"The feature of the Third Light system that we most use is its programming interface (API). We use Third Light library tools without leaving our own customised Django CMS."Oliver Davies, Head of Digital Delivery, UKTV
"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
"We took the decision to use Third Light as our digital asset management tool for all our websites and digital products. It offered flexibility of use at a very good price. "Oliver Davies, Head of Digital, UKTV
"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
"The system's capabilities are second to none in terms of data management, security, ease of uploading, tracking downloads and allocating permissions to different levels of users."Tim Lumsdaine, Morph Creative
"From the sales process at the very beginning of our relationship to sporadic issues that pop up, to large scale questions, we have been very impressed with our customer service experience. I recommend Third Light to anyone I can. For the price and the quality of the software, Third Light can't be beat."Dan Hilton, Phoenix Suns
"They are always happy and able to help with queries in super fast response time, or to give you some extra training, which helps you to get the best from their product. The online webinars that they have are so insightful. Just a really great company to work with, fun, friendly people with the highest levels of professionalism. Would recommend them to any other business."John - Enterprise user (1000+ employees) - G2 Review
"Third Light has made our digital media easily searchable and much more engaging. We are years ahead of where we were before them."The Pittsburgh Penguins
"Third Light was perfect for us. We initially wanted it for our huge photo library, but now we use it to backup our various artwork, video, and animation files as well. Third Light has been wonderful in training us and answering our many questions. I can’t believe how long we struggled with our old system. We love how intuitive the system is. It does everything we need and more, and it's FAST. We are VERY happy customers."Trina Van Patten, Tri-State
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.
