Chorus is a digital media library that mirrors the way you work, and is perfect for remote working.
Our latest generation of media library software is designed with departments in mind, to help your whole organization manage and share digital content, no matter where they are.
Just £4999 per year, fully hosted with 1TB storage
Serving as virtual homes for departments and project teams, Chorus's spaces are configured to mirror the way you work.
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.
They're intuitive to get around and loaded with intelligent tools. Enhance storage, sharing and collaboration – within your organization and beyond.
Spaces can have different administrators; they can remain separate or connect to other spaces.
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.
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.
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.
Helpful metadata filters are automatically suggested for you. Spend less time on common tasks such as uploading, batch editing and downloading files.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Make your spaces as open or locked as you need them to be – once added, every user is automatically assigned the correct access.
Set site, folder, user and other organizational permissions for added security. Users can hold different roles in multiple spaces.
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.
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.
Chorus is your central storage space for everything. Store and organize your PDFs, Office documents and other non-visual files.
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.
All requests are brought together in the dashboard, which drives quick, effective hand-off between users and managers.
Set Chorus to check with approvers before releasing or accepting files.
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.
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).
No more one-size-fits-all tagging. A file can be tagged differently to suit the differing needs of multiple departments, with zero interference.
Downloaded files come with readable IPTC and Adobe XMP metadata embedded. You can also import and export metadata using spreadsheets.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With 20 years’ combined experience, our award-winning Customer Success team is here to help your teams get the best out of Chorus – from the moment you start using it.
Send us your existing files on a hard drive (we’ll supply one). We’ll set them up on your Chorus server and you’ll be good to go!
Induction training makes sure your teams can start using it right away. After that, extra training and regular webinars help everyone maintain and expand their knowledge.
Once you’re up and running, our Customer Success team are there to offer help whenever you need it. We can also provide personalized training and consultancy.
