In the media management landscape, staying ahead of the curve is crucial. If you still rely on Canto, it’s time for a reality check. The world has moved beyond static solutions, and today, we’ll show you why Shade, an AI-powered media manager, is the game-changer you’ve been waiting for.

The Downside of Canto

Canto has been a reliable name in media management for some time. However, as technology advances, so do our needs. Canto’s limitations have become glaringly apparent, making it feel like a relic in today’s AI-driven world.

  1. Manual Labor: Canto relies heavily on manual tagging and categorization. It’s time-consuming and far from efficient. In the era of automation, this approach is not just outdated; it’s a productivity roadblock.
  2. Search Struggles: Ever found yourself sifting through folders desperately trying to locate that one crucial file? Canto’s search functionality leaves much to be desired. The modern world demands quick and accurate retrieval of assets, and Canto falls short here.
  3. AI Gap: Artificial intelligence is the future, and Canto has lagged behind in adopting this revolutionary technology. In a world where AI can analyze your media and offer efficiency, sticking to Canto means missing out on valuable time-saving solutions.

Why AI is the Future

Now, let’s shift our focus to the future – Shade, the AI media manager that’s set to redefine your studio’s experience.

  1. Effortless Organization: Shade takes the pain out of organizing your media. Its AI visual neural engine automatically tags, indexes, and safeguards your digital assets without requiring file names or manual actions.
  2. Visual Search: No need to remember file names or struggle with complex search queries. Shade’s AI analyzes objects within your media, allowing you to search based on visual and auditory elements.
  3. Seamless Integration: Unlike Canto, Shade seamlessly integrates with your favorite software, including video editing platforms like Adobe Premiere and Final Cut—no more time-wasting transitions between windows. Shade ensures your workflow remains uninterrupted.
