The 20% of Media Management Everyone Needs

Media Engine is a modern media management service built into the Signiant Platform. Easily do a federated search across all your storage – on premises and in the cloud – and quickly preview and interact with media assets. Results are immediately actionable via the powerful services available on the platform, anchored by fast file transfer.

Media Engine is included with every Signiant SaaS subscription.

Get Started

Find

Search easily and intuitively. Find any file type.

Simply enter keywords, file types or key phrases into the search bar and find your media.

With Media Engine, Signiant technology indexes your existing files on your existing storage. When indexing is done – start searching. If search terms match the metadata associated with assets in your Signiant-enabled storage, Media Engine will find them. Unlike legacy MAM systems, there’s no need to re-ingest your media or align with a structured metadata schema. And Media Engine scales automatically as your content environment evolves.

Find all the file types you use every day for media production and distribution.

Media Engine doesn’t just find media formats. We know that production people need to find and work with PDFs, JPEGs and TIFFS along with their MXFs and .MOVs.

Preview

View any media file. Leverage Cloud AI/ML.

Not sure that’s the file you’re looking for? Viewing a bit of video is often the most efficient means of checking, and Media Engine lets you do this without downloading the heavy asset. We support a very broad range of professional media formats, and frame-accurate proxies are coming soon.

Media Engine's proxy and metadata framework makes it easy to bring the power of cloud AI services to your media operations.

Proxies are accessible to 3rd-party services via API, and the resulting metadata can be returned to the Signiant Platform ⎯ also via API. Try out processes like object recognition, facial recognition, or transcription in a low-friction, non-disruptive manner.

Once you have found the file you’re looking for and confirmed that it’s the right one, you might need to download it immediately, or get it in the hands of another party in your ecosystem. This is easy via an integration with Media Shuttle, the Signiant SaaS product designed for person-initiated transfers.

This functionality, commonly known as Partial File Restore, is particularly critical in cloud workflows. Egress charges will be lower when users download targeted segments rather than the entire asset, and you will also save valuable time.

Media Engine and Metadata

With Media Engine, any assets connected to the Signiant Platform will be registered into this lightweight, next-generation media management system. Media Engine creates a unique identifier for each asset and ensures that any metadata associated with that asset always remains tightly coupled.

The metadata repository for each asset can be augmented and modified in a variety of ways:

  • Signiant automatically generates asset-level and transfer-related metadata. We then extract embedded metadata for MediaInfo analysis.
  • Platform end users can manually input data into configurable forms.
  • Existing structured metadata can be imported from an asset management system or 3rd-party service.
  • Newly generated unstructured metadata can be imported from cloud AI/ML systems.
  • Metadata (such as file name) can be manually modified within the Media Engine interface.
