Here are some tips on how you as a Producer may use the search function in Mediabank:
- The top text-box is a «google style» free text search, including use of «», *, + and -. Use the free text search if you have unike information such as the «exact title».
- Use smart search for results within a special sport, venue, ClipType and so on.
- Use W2 for a good overview of your search results and the possibility to sort by the columns values. (Use the W2 settings option, found in your Dashboard, for individual settings).
- Use predefined saved searches and save your own for later use. Please note that if your search criteria fits, asset ingested in the future will appear in your saved search result.
- Eg: save a search with TagsClipType equal to Main Event to only get the main event assets in your result and not all the AutoClips created during the live feed.

3. Finding those special logged moments to create your story:
The workspaces 4 and 5 in Library are dedicated to the Tags and Events feature in Mediabank. As a Producer this will definitely be the best place and easiest way to find the greatest clips and highlights from the Olympic venues.
Everything of importance that happens in the live event-feeds from Pyeyongchang will be tagged and made searchable when the happening is over and fully recorded. Chosen tagged Events will create AutoClips as it happens and made available in the Library almost instantly.
Please see the support section of «Customer specific guides» or the Olympic Slack channels to find information on which Events that trigger AutoClips.
If you want more in dept information on how to search and use the Events inside the different sport feeds; please see our video tutorial about Library Tags and Events in workspaces 4 and 5:
Here are some tips on how you as a Producer may use W4/W5 events:
- Please note that there is a big difference between searching for tags/events in the log and the assets search in Using the search events modul will give you results from the log across assets, such as specific athletes and emotions. While asset search, as you know it, gives you results within titles and metadata linked to each asset.
- Prepare your program using the AutoClips generated while the main event still occurs. Use Tagslist and event timeline in W4/W5 after the main asset is made available.
- Search for events will search all assets from all venues available in your account, not only the asset loaded in the player. For search within one asset use search in the Taglist
- Use event search filters to narrow your search and save search for keeping or sharing.
- Mark your chosen Events and make Cliplists of your interest.
- Tip: Make Cliplists and name them with your different planed editorials. Add clips that will be «good to have» to the different Cliplists when you find them.
- Make shared Cliplists and share saved searches with your group or your local market (public).
