ITV case study

"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 Studios
