The Sector guide provides step-by-step guidance for your Sector Projects.

Media file management and media file types

Media adds advanced file and media management to your site. The preconfigured Sector media types include metadata fields - from captions, to transcripts, to copyright; Sector brings it out of the box.

Media types

The Media module suite provides an advanced media library and file management system integrated into the CMS workflow. It allows searches over the file library and advanced metadata management, as well as usage statistics for files, images, audio, and video.

Media has undergone some major changes in Drupal 8 - read more in our Sector D8 roadmap and the Sector media file types and configuration (Sector D8).
