Many of our Mediabank clients store tens or hundreds of thousands of video clips (assets) and events in the Mediabank Library that must be located and made available to the users within seconds.
And with the vast amount of assets, clips, and events, the search result must be as relevant and accurate as possible.
The following articles are about searching, locating, and bringing structure to the search results. But, It is essential to know that nothing of the above is possible without metadata. Not only is the metadata necessary, but also the structure of it. Incoming media content must contain information to be classified and structured. Using that information, Mediabank can provide advanced search functions that enable users to access their media content quickly.
Mediabank can also adapt to our client's organizational structure by presenting specialized views based on their user's work or department functions.
The following articles describe the different approaches used to manage the entire storage of media content in Mediabank.
The tools needed to control the media content are described in several articles (3.03.xx).
Below is a view of the various tools provided by Mediabank:
- Search - A simple Google-style search
- Advanced search - As above, but with the ability to use metadata, date search, etc.
- Saved searches - Easy "button" or breadcrumb activated Advanced searches previously saved.
- Projects - Manually added assets
- Groups - Manually added assets
- Calendar search - Predefined searches often related to sport type and event dates
- Collections - Predefined searches often related to the type of sport, league, or similar
