Synthesize is where you can create highlights reels. You accomplish this by selecting tags used in the project, reviewing and organizing the resulting annotations in the way you want, and then sharing, exporting, or adding them to your insights collection.

Check below for more details on using synthesis to turn your analysis into highlight reels.

Navigating to Synthesis

You can navigate to Synthesis in three ways:

1. Select the "Synthesis" page on the left-hand navigation bar

2. Select the "Synthesize" button on the dashboard under the insights section

3. Select the "Synthesize" button when in an asset

Use Tags to start creating your highlight reels

The tag bank on the left shows the tags and metadata tags used in your project. Search or sort, and then select a tag or tags to list annotations with those tags. If you select a metadata tag, it will show all the annotations from the associated asset that has that metadata tag.

Tag actions

  • Selecting Tags

    You can select a tag by selecting its check box on the left. From there you can Copy or Merge tags as needed.

  • Sorting Tags

    You can sort the tags within a project by name, by the number of annotations containing that tag, or by color, in ascending or descending order.

  • Searching for Tags

    You can pull up a specific tag or metadata tag simply by using the search bar on the left side of the page.

  • Merging Tags

    Tags can be merged to create new tags that link to the matching conditions of the merged tags. Within the Tags page, select the tags you would like to merge and click “Merge” on above the list of tags. Assign a new name to your new tag.

Organize and playback your Annotations

Once you've selected your tags and listed your annotations you can watch the annotations play through, and edit the order of annotations by dragging and dropping. Deselect unwanted annotations, and filter in the case of multi-tag selected annotations.

  • Selecting Annotation Cards

    Within a project being synthesized, select a tag and its annotation cards will show in the middle of the screen. Using the checkbox on the right of the annotation card, you can choose to unselect annotations. Only selected annotations will be visible when your synthesis is shared.

  • Filter Annotation Cards

    Annotation cards can be filtered by “Any” or “All” tags. “Any” will show annotations that have any of the selected tags. “All” will only show annotation cards that contain all selected tags.

  • Reorder Annotation Cards

    You can also reorder the annotations by clicking and dragging. When you share synthesis or generate a clip reel, the clips will play in the order you set here.

Share, export, or add to your Insights collection

Sharing your Synthesis

Click “Share” at the top right corner of the page to create a link to share your synthesized annotations.

The link has 3 access settings listed below.

  • Public: Anyone with the link can view it.

  • Private with a password: Set a password. Anyone with the password can view it.

  • Tetra teammates only: The link can only be accessed by Tetra Insights users in your organization.

Remember to press "Update Access" to apply any setting changes.

Note: The link that is created does not change when you change the access settings. Only selected annotation cards will be shared in the link given. The order will be based on the synthesis.


Click the “Export” button. You will then have the option to export a .mp4, a .csv, or both.

The .mp4 is a stitched clip of all the selected annotations in the order they are arranged during synthesis.

The .csv is all the data from those annotations, including the name of the project, start and end timestamps, the content of annotation, the user who created annotation, tags used, metadata tags used, snippet of transcript, date, and link to annotation in Tetra Insights.

Add to Insights collection

Save your collection of annotations into an Insight by clicking the "Add Insight" button. You'll be prompted to add a name and then the insight will be stored on the insight page. From there you can explore, share, or export it.
