In CMS, you can search for content inside your media. You can search against the output of any engine that was run on your media. For example, you can search by keywords against a transcript, or you can search by Face ID against a library of faces recognized by the face recognition engine run on your media file. You can also conduct multi-variance search, using search parameters against multiple engines at the same time:
 1 - Transcription - search by transcript
 2 - Sentiment - search by sentiment analysis
 3 - Face ID - search by recognized faces
 4 - Object detection - search by detected objects

Multi-Variant Search
