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.
