Digital Anarchy Announces Immediate Availability of PowerSearch®; Intelligent Metadata Search for Adobe© Premiere Pro© Editors



PowerSearch by Digital Anarchy Delivers Intelligent Metadata Search Capability in the Premiere Pro Timeline; Enables Key Word Searches to Precise Video Clips and Sequences

Digital Anarchy( today announced the immediate availability of PowerSearch®, a new product for Adobe© Premiere Pro© editors that intelligently searches metadata within video clips using keyword searches to find specific instances of spoken words or terms in video clips and sequences. PowerSearch is included in Digital Anarchy’s Transcriptive Suite, the Company’s new family of intelligent transcript, search and collaboration tools for video production


PowerSearch, a Premiere Pro plugin from Digital Anarchy, is a powerful metadata search tool that integrates with Adobe Premiere Pro and opens as a panel. This intelligent new search capability enables editors to quickly scour an entire project for metadata and instantly locate specific clips and sequences based on those keyword searches. PowerSearch quickly compiles search results in a panel window in Premiere, where each result can be selected for review directly in the preview window and at the precise timecode where that word or term appears in the sequence.


Additionally, Digital Anarchy’s Transcriptive® Plugin for Premiere combines with PowerSearch  to transform transcripts into searchable content all within the Premiere timeline – a significant time saver for Premiere editors.


This makes it possible to search everywhere there’s text in your Premiere project: Transcripts, clip markers, sequence markers, caption files and metadata. A search engine integrated into Premiere Pro.


The Digital Anarchy Team will be demonstrating PowerSearch in the IABM booth #8103 at Inter BEE 2018 this month in Japan.


The PowerSearch Workflow

PowerSearch is the only intelligent metadata search technology with direct integration with Adobe Premiere Pro. This industry-unique integration means editors are not required to leave the Premiere Pro timeline to launch separate applications as it launches as a panel within the timeline.


PowerSearch provides editors with a fast, accurate and efficient way to locate specific clips within a project, eliminating the slow, tedious and inaccurate process of manually searching through clips or sequences in the timeline and significantly accelerating the post production workflow.


PowerSearch is particularly powerful when used in conjunction with Digital Anarchy’s Transcriptive® Plugin for Premiere, which uses Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) to transcribe all dialog within a Premiere project into text metadata. Since Transcriptive automatically assigns timecode, i.e. metadata, to every spoken word in the transcript, PowerSearch transforms the transcripts into searchable content, which means editors can also search for other valuable metadata within a transcript, including date, format, location and many other data points.


Pricing and Availability

PowerSearch for Adobe Premiere is available immediately for $149.00 USD for new users, and $69.00 USD for current Transcriptive Plugin customers. For more information, or to purchase PowerSearch, please visit
