Instant Library provides key clips at the touch of a button

Instant Library is a historical moving image source exclusively for news broadcasters. It contains more than 60 hours of the most important events and figures of the last 75 years from the AP Archive. Totaling some 3000 individual clips, the library is a rich archive of pre-licensed file material for use in news bulletins.

Cambridge Imaging Systems has encoded the material from Beta SP tapes to digital file formats. A specially created Web site allows users to search for the clips they require simply by entering key words. Search results are displayed as a list of clips, showing a key frame and information (metadata) for each clip. Clips can then be selected and viewed either as a storyboard of thumbnail images, or played in a video player.

For more information, visit www.cambridgeimaging.co.uk and www.Instantlibrary.com.
