Company updates

The Clearcast Library – the switchover date is approaching

Final clearance in The Library

In early 2022 we told you about the benefits of our new system, The Library, and encouraged you to sign up and start clearing your final clocked ads. We’re pleased to say, over 600 major agencies and advertisers are already successfully using The Library, so if you’re already onboard, thanks.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be announcing a switchover date for moving over from CopyCentral to The Library for the final stage of clearance (scripts and rough cuts will still be cleared in CopyCentral). After this date, you won’t be able to get your clocked ads cleared in CopyCentral.

Key system changes

Before we give you the switchover date, we want to make sure the system is in line with the industry so we’ll be releasing these system updates soon:

  • Ability to accept zero second-end freeze.
  • Auto ingest function to support those with big files e.g., infomercials (Teleshopping) and ads with multiple variants.

Switchover now to avoid the rush

Waiting for the updates above doesn’t prevent you from signing up today, so contact where you’ll be sent the T&Cs to sign and will be given a system demo. Our operations team is on hand to help you onboard smoothly.

For extra help visit our helpdesk or watch our demo of how to submit your final TVCs to The Library.             

We look forward to having you onboard.

If you have any questions about signing up to The Library, get in touch.
