You can now choose, as an premium option, to deliver your material through The Library by choosing Clearcast as your distribution partner. To do this, you will need to first make sure your material has been uploaded, passed QC, and been cleared/sent for clearance.
Creating a Distribution Order
First go to the 'Distribution Order's tab in the left-hand menu on The Library. Then 'Create New Order' in the top right.
This takes you through to the new order form. Complete all fields (air date, job number and purchase order number are optional).
If you leave the ‘single campaign’ toggle off, you can select any material created under any owning team, which you can select in the ‘owning team’ dropdown; if you toggle on ‘single campaign’, this will restrict materials in this order to be from the same campaign.
Adding Materials to Order
Go into your distribution order and 'Add to Order.' Here you can select the material you would like to add to the order, your distributor, and the destinations you will be delivering the material to. Please select Clearcast as your distributor - if you want to use a different organisation, please contact them directly.
You can add more materials to this order using the same process as above.
Submitting Your Order
Once you are ready to submit your order and its material(s) for delivery to broadcasters through your chosen delivery provider, please click the ‘submit’ button on the top right of the page. This will lock in your order and begin the sending process.
You can see the status of your delivery in the order status where it will go from grey 'Pending' to green 'Complete.' We deliver usually within 15 minutes - we do not hold onto copy or charge for faster delivery. In very rare instances you may see an 'Error' status - please contact the helpdesk straightaway if you see this.
PLEASE NOTE that a distribution order will not be processed if any of the materials within that order has failed any of the QC checks.
