Work smarter with spaces

Serving as virtual homes for departments and project teams, Chorus's spaces are configured to mirror the way you work.

Streamline processes

When tailored to suit their users' requirements, spaces will help your team automate and simplify everyday tasks. Upload, download, search, tag and share – for faster, easier content management.

Simple to use

They're intuitive to get around and loaded with intelligent tools. Enhance storage, sharing and collaboration – within your organization and beyond.

Share responsibility

Spaces can have different administrators; they can remain separate or connect to other spaces.

Navigate and collaborate with ease

Chorus is designed to help all your colleagues – and any suppliers, customers and partners – do their very best work, regardless of role or physical location.

Use on any device

Branded with your colours and logo for instant recognition wherever it's used, the system works on Windows and macOS, as well as iPad. Our free mobile app for Android and iOS allow users to upload geotagged images and videos almost instantly.

Move around easily

Browsing is frictionless and intuitive, with familiar user features. Scroll infinitely through results: double-click to select, view two folders side-by-side and drag and drop files between them using the split pane view.

Enjoy smart assistance

Helpful metadata filters are automatically suggested for you. Spend less time on common tasks such as uploading, batch editing and downloading files.

Boost your brand

Chorus allows you to make consistent, high-quality content available to your target audience to browse, search and download quickly and securely, via a branded portal.

Share key assets

Email links to whole libraries, folders and files, using carefully themed templates. They’re not just on-brand, but also designed to handle large downloads and heavy user traffic.

Share securely

Using a unique security system, emailed links to your branded portal can be locked to individuals to prevent re-sharing – but without the need for a password to sign in. These links can be embargoed or expired, watermarked and protected from forwarding.

Empower your teams

Chorus is configurable to mirror the way your teams, projects or departments are structured. Give users the autonomy to control their own spaces while keeping important files safe and secure.

Control access, grant freedom

Make your spaces as open or locked as you need them to be – once added, every user is automatically assigned the correct access.

Organize permissions for your team

Set site, folder, user and other organizational permissions for added security. Users can hold different roles in multiple spaces.

All your files, in one place

Chorus has the ability to store and preview far more than just photos. It supports a wide range of file formats, including many proprietary or complex file types.

Manage video and audio

There's no need for heavyweight studio software when Chorus makes quick work of managing video and audio files. Upload, watch and listen – then publish or share lightweight links.

Include documents and presentations

Chorus is your central storage space for everything. Store and organize your PDFs, Office documents and other non-visual files.

Effortless workflows

Making your media easy to use and access doesn't mean losing control. Keep all the right people involved in decisions and approvals via the fully configurable workflow dashboard.

Stay in control

All requests are brought together in the dashboard, which drives quick, effective hand-off between users and managers.

Approve uploads and downloads

Set Chorus to check with approvers before releasing or accepting files.

Find your files, fast

Controlled vocabularies, dropdown lists, visual labels – whichever way you choose to add information to a file in Chorus, its value to your users becomes supercharged.

Reduce workload with AI tagging

Tag files in bulk, quickly. Chorus harnesses artificial intelligence to tag thousands of your images almost instantly. Add your own metadata to a folder, and that information will automatically cascade into its contents (and any files uploaded in the future).

Customize your file information

No more one-size-fits-all tagging. A file can be tagged differently to suit the differing needs of multiple departments, with zero interference.

Customize and integrate with metadata

Downloaded files come with readable IPTC and Adobe XMP metadata embedded. You can also import and export metadata using spreadsheets.

A system you can rely on

Flexible, secure and affordable – we can supply as much storage as you need. Alternatively, host your library on your own network or in a public cloud.

Continuous protection

Wherever you choose to store your files, you get the same Chorus: securely encrypted and regularly updated. Don't take our word for it, the system is regularly penetration-tested by an external security assessor as well as meeting other strict security standards.

A modern, robust system

Chorus has been tested and updated consistently since 2017. We roll out updates for security and functionality every quarter. Chorus is also API-first with 100% coverage.

Behind-the-scenes support

We offer your IT team the tools they need for authentication, system admin, storage management, backup and replication as standard. We use end-to-end HTTPS encryption to keep your data safe, and take care of information security standards for you.
