USER REGISTRATIONThe ITF Content Portal is a locked down system, with content only available to users who have registered and have been approved by the ITF.
A system Administrator will be notified of the new registration and will approve the account. If additional permissions are needed, these can be given by adding the new user to a User Group to inherit its permissions.
BROWSING & SEARCHINGFrom the Content Portal homepage, you may find content you need in different ways.
BrowsingThe homepage provides featured content from different competitions (Davis Cup, Fed Cup, etc.) as well as Latest Content and Other Recommendations. Scroll down to see these entries and click on any one to jump to it and start previewing the media.
The Homepage's search bar at the top of the page allows you to search by keywords. Clicking on it reveals the Saved Searches Manager, a handy tool which allows you to set notifications for saved searches and delete them. Click on the Bell Icon to access these settings.
Search Bar Keywords
When searching across the ITF's Content Portal, you should use keywords which identify the media you are after clearly. This may include: Player Names, Action Descriptions (e.g. 'Ace', 'Rally' 'Trophy Lift' etc.), Location, Tournament and Year.
Once you have made a keyword search, your results will be displayed in a results page. Use the Filters & Sort option on the left hand side to narrow down your search results by Metadata fields and arrange them by Date or Relevance.
Keywords within Media
Once you have identified a piece of media, additional options exist to search with the media. When previewing video, Annotations appear on the right hand side of media. Keywords you can use to identify include:
Media held on the ITF Content Portal will have a lightweight media rendition to preview content when available.
Videos you preview on the website will be watermarked - the original media or clips you create from it will not be watermarked.
A few tricks listed below will help you find your way around the media.
Annotations - these extra medata tags are shown if available to the right of the media preview window. In videos and audio files these link to timecodes, in stills these link to shapes and areas within the image. You can search through annotations using the filter bar at the bottom of the annotations panel (e.g. 'Match Point').
Keywords within Media -
Once you have identified a piece of media, additional options exist to search with the media. When previewing video, Annotations appear on the right hand side of media. Keywords you can use to identify moments to jump to include:

Intuitive in its use, it includes extra functionality such as keyboard shortcuts J, K, and L for scrubbing through media, I and O to create Clip In and Clip Out points, arrow keys to nudge frame by frame and spacebar to pause and resume playback.
Metadata - Below the Media Player, the record and media's information is displayed by field. These are the fields selectively chosen to be featured in the search engine to create filters and narrow down search results.

It can be accessed under Account in the top menu (below the search bar, pictured left). It can also be accessed by clicking on your Avatar (buddy icon or profile picture at the top right).
