stop or extend live stream schedules


Live Stream Controls

Imagen Pro’s live streaming feature enables logged-in users to watch a live feed. The RTMP feed can also be captured and added to your archive.

Our latest update gives administrator-level users more control over live stream recording so they can respond to changes in the planned schedule. For example, if a sporting event runs into extra time or experiences unscheduled delays, it’s now possible to stop or extend the live stream using the simple controls available in the record page. 

The recorded streams can still be accessed like any other Imagen record. Click here for more information about Imagen Pro’s live streaming and recording features.

Find files faster with automated indexing


Searchable documents

Imagen Pro doesn’t just manage rich media content. It also supports a wide range of document file formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe PDFs.

In our latest update, documents can be automatically indexed during an ingest workflow. Now, your documents will be easy to locate if a keyword search matches the text in your files.

Please contact your account manager if you would like to activate this workflow.

Create relational metadata fields for field-dependent options


Cascading Metadata Entry

Let’s get relational! Imagen Pro’s new relational metadata fields enable administrators to establish Parent / Child values between fields in your database. They present themselves to end-users as a cascading set of drop-down options for fast, efficient metadata entry.

That means that if a particular option is chosen from a Parent picklist, the end-user can be presented with a new set of options that are dependant on their choice. For example, choosing Tennis from a Parent list containing Football, Tennis, Rugby, will subsequently present a Child list containing US Open / Australian Open / French Open, etc.

Site-wide announcements


Custom Site Banner

Imagen Pro’s new customisable site banners can be used to alert users about a service update, an upcoming event or promotion. 

The message can also include a custom action button which can direct users to another page on your platform or a third party URL to provide additional information. 

Create a multi-faceted 'OR' type search query


Additive Filters

Our updated filter control allows users to create ‘OR’ type search queries using Imagen Pro’s simple intuitive search interface. Once Additive Filters are enabled by an administrator, your audience will be able to add more than one selection to a specific category filter to increase the number of search results.

For example, a user can expand a search query to include video ‘OR’ images using the simple button controls – alternatively, they could add Comedy ‘OR’ Documentary to a Genre category filter to broaden their hitlist of available media.

More meaningful naming conventions


Customise Download Filename

Customise your file download naming convention to offer more meaningful filenames to your users. For example use the Record Title (‘Aerial View of New York’) to override the Original Filename of ‘DCIM_IMG_12022021’

Choose any combination of the following variables to rename your file on download: Record Title, Profile Name, Media ID, and Original Filename.
