Using In-Video Search with AnyClip

As a part of the Promax community, you have access to an amazing collection of video content. From last year’s Promax Award winners to videos within our Content Library, there’s always something to discover. But sometimes, it’s daunting to even think about sorting through so many video clips to find a specific spot or moment you want. That’s what in-video search is for.

What is In-Video Search?

When you search videos on Promax, powered by AnyClip, you don’t need to remember the title of the video you’re looking for or scroll through a giant list. The search actually looks inside the video, indexing talent, brands, objects, keywords, speech, and written text. Even better, it doesn’t just return the most relevant videos; you can jump straight to the moment in the video you’re thinking of. It’s the smart way to search: no more scrolling.

Using In-Video Search with AnyClip

Start out by entering your query or search term in the search bar. For example, you might search for a brand, like Apple TV+, Hallmark, or NBCUniversal. As an illustration, let’s go even more specific. Maybe you want to look for Anderson Cooper within CNN clips. Type “Anderson Cooper” and “CNN.”

STEP 2: 
You’ll get a list of the most relevant videos based on your search, and choose the video you’re interested in watching.

Once you’ve chosen a video, you can dig deeper. You’ll find a “Deep Search” tab next to your video that highlights where your search terms show up in the video’s timeline.

It’s even color-coded so you can easily navigate through the different potential references:

Just click on any of the tags that have been surfaced, and you’ll jump straight to that point in the video! For example, if you click on a blue CNN tag, you’ll be taken to the moment the logo appears. If you click a green “people” tag for “Anderson Cooper,” you’ll jump to the first time his face appears. On the other hand, a purple audio “Anderson Cooper” tag will take you to when his name is mentioned, while an orange text “Anderson Cooper” tag will take you to when his name is printed onscreen. It’s easy to find the exact context you were looking for.

Want to narrow things down further? Once you’re in a video, you can continue to change your search terms to explore that video.

Now, finding the precise moment in a video you’re thinking about only takes a moment. It’s just as easy to find every video in the database on a particular topic or featuring a specific person. Your search can be as smart as you are.
