The purpose of Action menu
Review & Approval and Compliance
From these applications, a typical use is to share the media file (asset) with another recipient using Quicklink. Working in these applications usually involves other colleagues or resources and review processes. You can share the media file and its notations with other resources that are:
- Not part of your Mediabank account
- Are travelling without access to Mediabank or their machines.
If you need their comments or approval, you simply send them the Quicklink with your annotations. They can simply respond from their smart phone including their annotations, fully integrated with Mediabank.
Even if all types of destinations are available from the Mediabank applications, M-boxes are probably most common from this application. From Library you can use M-boxes for:
- Backup/archive server.
- Publishing services like YouTube
- FTP destinations
This was just a few examples providing a basic knowledge of Mediabank features and services.
Action menu content
The action menu serves to types of destinations, personal and machines/publishing.
You must be an administrator to create Mboxes and you must have the knowledge to set up the different communication parameters for each recipient. I you are not, then different predefined Mboxes are most likely already configured for you. These boxes are predefined and guarantees correct transfer each time. They even reduces the possibilities for misspelling and other human errors.
Select your mediafiles, click on the correct M-box from the Action Menu and the mediafiles are transferred to a queue waiting for you to press Execute.
