Many users may access the dataset simultaneously from separate network-connected workstations.
As soon as the content ingest by ATHENSA INGEST has finished, ATHENSA CATALOG imports the media asset into the database with its relevant metadata coming from ATHENSA INGEST capture list. Content coming from different sources can automatically be assigned to different content categories for easier database sorting.
- Network access the database
As a true SQL database, ATHENSA CATALOG clients work with a shared database content throughout the network. No special network traffic overhead is created even when multiple users work simultaneously.
- Advanced content classification
Content can be sorted by three main classification levels, as well as by cross-profiles such as sequences, groups, keywords, etc.
- Advanced media description
Metadata could be content related as well as media related
- User definable data fields
Comprehensive tools for custom data definition editing and filtering
- Search by multiple criteria
Content searches can be done by many data fields at the same time.
- Sorting and Filtering
- Filtering by a group of fields
Searching and viewing data subsets is extremely easy. Over each data column in the grid there is a filter section. Entering letters or numbers in the filter field automatically filters the matching entries only. Wildcards apply as usual. Additional search in this subset might be performed too
Most fields may contain as many values as you like -multiple genres, keywords, media, streams, people, companies…
- Multiple parts, channels and media
Each program may consist of many parts, recorded on separate media. Each part may consist of multiple audio/video/subtitle tracks
- Intuitive, easy to use interface
Each part of the interface is a data manager, dedicated to classification, credits, locations, etc. The main grid area gives a clear overview of all the content, while the classification tree is shown besides it. No special training is required for the user to master ATHENSA CATALOG.
