This could be used, for instance, to allow multi-site production teams to upload proxy content and metadata to the cloud for a shared, searchable environment.

Several customers are currently testing the latest version of Stage, which expected to be available in June.

Said Art Raymond, CEO of Levels Beyond, in a released statement: "It untethers local content libraries so producers can take full advantage of the paradigm shift currently under way on how people interact with and publish video content."

The USC Digital Repository recently implemented Reach Engine as part of it library management.
