The Event Workspaces 4 & 5 are integrated with Library, making it efficient navigating between thousands of event-clips in your possession. The main window still consists of three major elements, Search and asset/search module to the left, Media player in the middle and the Meta module to the right. All other functions are placed under the contextual button named MENU in the top middle of the screen. The Timeline in the lower-end is combined with destination Mboxes.
Mediabank is developed using modules. To simplify the documentation structure, we use the same architectural structure. This documentation will refer to modules and components that this and future applications are sharing.
Each of the below topics are described in related articles found in this article top right side menu.
(1) Header module
Many of the less frequently used applications are now moved into the Header module. If you seek information on how to switch accounts, workspaces (W1, W2 etc.), login info, logo handling etc.
(2) Search module
Here you can find more information about the powerful search and filter functions in Mediabank:
(3) Asset module
More details about the asset list and columns are described in related articles
(4) Title module
Read more details about the Title module in the related article.
(5) Player module
The new frame accurate mediaplayer is currently implemented throughout the Mediabank services. Events (W4 & W5) is no exception and you can read more about it in the related article.
(6) Navigation module
Read more on how to navigate within your Event asset and post tags and clips.
The status module has no function in Events and therefore not present.
(7) Meta module
The Meta module contains the most important topics in Event. Read more about Tag, Event, and Clips in a related article.
The timeline shows all the events in a sequential view. Clicking on a selected event will automatically navigate the media player to that event and pause, waiting for you to hit the play button. At the same time the Tag list will locate the corresponding tag and highlight it.
A note about Timecodes
Why is there a difference in the visible time-fields between the different modules?
The timeline shows the media-clip time that corresponds to the bottom bar in the media player. The media players low right time shows the media clips total length. This clock starts from the start of the media clip (asset).
Then there is LTC (Longitudinal Time Code) viewed in the middle top of the media player that is considered (from our point of view) as "the" technical time code related to the exact reference. Everything in our system has this time as the base time reference.
To the right of the LTC is the match time. This clock starts at game start and it corresponds with the tag list. Event timeline in the pull-up module will start at 0:0 for each period/clip).
