So, how does one load media files (like MP3 or MP4 files) off of a USB flash drive and into the Clarity console's hard drive (such as the media folder)? I'm not seeing any file management utilities anywhere, nor any mention in the manual.

If you talk about the LX-Range you have to do it at the moment via network.
Connect your Laptop or PC to one of the Network-Outputs of the console, make sure you have the right IP & Submask.
Watch out for the console ID in your local network, from there you can open the console's Show-Folder.
Create on your Laptop or PC a folder called maybe "mediafiles" and drop the files you need in this folder.
Copy this folder into the Show-Folder of the console and done.
Now you can get the files from there like described in the manual for the different functions.

Regards,
Klaus

Unless there's some bug that I'm unaware of, you can do this via a USB stick/drive.

E.g. for MP3 audio, insert your USB stick containing the files and got to Control Booth, Audio then click Add,

In the file dialog browse to the USB stick (which is Computer, /, media, {your usb stick}

Select the file(s) and click Open. After a short pause the file(s) will appear in the Audio Resources folder.

All media that is added to Clarity from elsewhere (audio files, images/movies, rig backgrounds) is automatically added to the media folder - you don't need to manually copy files there. Generally you add the media files to the place where they will be used in Clarity (e.g. movies/images to a pixel matrix, rig background to rig view, audio to control booth audio).

There will be a general-purpose media management tool in a future version to allow you to browse or clear out the media folder.

Hope that helps,
Nick

This was a new feature, added as part of SP011 for the LX consoles.

The user manual is still slightly behind, but will be updated with this new information in the near future.
