Curator: The video content management software built for
Now anyone can ingest any video file, anywhere they are.
Your video management system only works if there’s content in it. But that content is spread over various locations; on hard drives in desk drawers and editors' laptops, on camera cards and producers’ personal cloud storage.
Keeping video content safe
Give your whole team an easy way to ingest content into your VAM platform so all high-value video assets are searchable and usable in one secure, central place.
Manage remote contributors
Easy remote ingest lets your team upload from anywhere in the world so you can be sure that remote contributors get that crucial content to you successfully and on time.
The metadata you need
Stop trying to work out where files are or where they’ve come from. Contributors are required to add specific, custom metadata on ingest saving time and avoiding duplication of effort.
If you can’t find your video content, how are you ever going to use it?
When you’ve got thousands of assets in your Video Content Management System, finding the right frame can seem impossible. But if you can’t find it, you can’t monetize it and you’ll end up duplicating effort. Intelligent search will find the files you didn’t even know you had in an instant.
You can’t rely on humans!
An intuitive suggestive-search experience makes it easy to explore and discover the available video content and metadata within, without asking for help.
100% availability and archived?
Save money on expensive on-prem storage while keeping all of your assets searchable. Stream frame-accurate proxy files to view and work on your content.
Business-wide user permissions
From God-mode to single-asset-restriction, you and your entire organization can view the video your business is creating without worry or the need to access storage.
Automated metadata & smart logging
Get the right metadata in the right place, fast.
Video content management is all about having the right metadata in the right places. Tagging your content quickly and accurately is essential if you’re ever going to find or use it again… usually that’s easier said than done. Curator makes it easier done than said!
Ingest with metadata
Ensure that every single asset has metadata from the offset. Extract configurable metadata in ingest to have information you need about the video.
Controlled vocabularies mean loggers can’t make a typo or input the wrong name, so you’ll keep all your metadata consistent and useful to everybody.
Curator Logger provides multiple configurable workspaces and intuitive layouts to meet all needs, from basketball to broadcast news to compliance logging.
Configured for success
Loggers are set up for success from the start, helping your team tag content much faster and much more accurately so you can be the first to show live content.
Make it fast to add
You don’t just need data about the overall file, you need to know where the bit you need it is in the clip. Add this data really quickly so you can jump straight to the tag when you search for it.
Manual tagging just too dull? AI-led tagging options such as speech to text and object recognition will help take the grind out of adding manual metadata.
2% file size100% frame-accurate fire-power
Video is too big to work in the flexible way today’s organizations need it to: you can’t send, share or store it without spending a lot of time and money. Curator proxies are designed to solve this problem: they’re frame-accurate and just 2% of the size of the hi-res content.
Spiralling storage costs?
Keeping hi-res content constantly available will munch through your storage budget in weeks. Archive assets and keep working on them with our pioneering proxies.
Sharing (video) is caring
Want to share content with other teams, editors and executives but it fails or takes forever to send? Not with our frame-accurate, 2% proxies. Share the love!
Save time, save money, do more
Using our world-leading proxies will save your creatives 10’s of manhours of time waiting on large files to download every month, and free them up to be more productive too.
Edit video assets where you are, not where they are
Almost no organization works in the same location all the time, especially those organizations creating video - so you have to be able to view, edit and produce new video wherever you are. The problem is that video’s hard to move or share… or is it?
Edit from wherever
Employ the best person for the job wherever they’re located. They can view, work on, conform and submit content remotely and securely, without waiting for it to download.
Bigger is not always better
Transferring hi-res content is so expensive...so don’t! Stream frame-accurate proxies from any location, work it, then conform it using the hi-res where it’s stored.
What’s the collective noun for a group of editors huddling around a server with tangled ethernet cables? Doesn’t matter, with our proxies, that’s a thing of the past.
AI: Speech to text
Think speech to text is already old news?
Speech to text is the most developed AI technology there is - so why aren’t you using it? And, if you are, are you getting the best from it? Curator makes sure you do.
Speech to text will save hours of manual tagging and scrolling and make all of your content searchable and ensure that you jump straight to the relevant frame.
Accessibility and meeting regulatory requirements costs! If you’re captioning more than 3.5 hours of video each week, speech to text will pay for itself.
Need an easy way of making your content accessible to a new audience? Captioning in a foreign language is a cost-effective solution to penetrating new markets.
AI: Object recognition
A picture paints a thousandmetadata tags
Object recognition is the perfect way to generate metadata automatically; from A-Z list celebs to the most elaborate scenery. But make sure you don’t get buried in data. Curator will stop you from ending up with more than you bargained for!
Auto-tagged content with no manual input. Get data based on what you can see in each clip, then use Curator to make it easily searchable.
Don’t be deluged
An hour of content can create 214,000 tags! Curator is easily configurable to help you overcome this deluge of metatags and only show the most relevant.
Get the results most useful to you
Want the tags concerning people, but don’t care about the scenery? Use controlled vocabularies or filter by confidence to ensure that you only get the most accurate.
Take all the guesswork out of video asset archiving
Huge volumes of video have to be stored somewhere, but you’re faced with a choice between expensive online storage and cheap but inaccessible offline storage. Choosing what to keep online and what to archive can feel like a lottery: Take the guesswork out of archiving.
The accessible storage conundrum
Producing the highest quality content you can leads to higher storage costs. Why not use cost effective, less accessible storage and proxies to search and edit instead?
Monetizing archived video
Even in less accessible storage you can manage the restore process with intelligent retrieval, so the content you need is always available when you need it.
Best of both worlds
Like the idea of cloud but struggling with security? Want to make the most of your existing on-prem investments? We make it easy and secure to use either or hybrid of both.
Everyone’s talking about OTT - make sure you can, too.
OTT is the way to deliver modern content, but it requires new kinds of investment and expertise. From searching to delivery and analytics, Curator can help to take the pain out of this process.
Can you find it?
You can create loads of great content, but can your audience find it? Add searchable metadata to your video so it’s easy to find the episode where that thing happened!
Making content available
Get the right content from your video management system at the right air time and publish automatically to your OTT site.
If you’re experimenting with OTT you need analytics to make sure you’re getting the results you want. Curator will help you to track viewer numbers and more.

Find the right project
Trudging through folder systems wastes everyone's time. Concentrate on creating content instead. Find what you’re looking for and who’s worked on it instantly.
Want to work from home, but have an important project to finish? Stream proxy versions of your content, then conform your final work back to where the hi-res is stored.

Video is more valuable the faster you turn it around. Superfast content creation with live markers appearing as you’re working (from anywhere!) is made easy.
Curator for Avid
Working with Avid can be easy

Logging in Avid made easy
Getting accurate logs to Avid can be a challenge but without them you won’t be able to quickly tag, search and edit live content. Log live content straight into Avid strata.
