Metadata is indispensable for content archives, programme production, distribution and any system designed to electronically search and retrieve the assets you need and want. As we move to service-based production, broadcasters need to consider the widespread adoption of automatic information extraction tools as new processes in agile workflows. These tools can be used to produce more information (including structured metadata) that is needed by modern production systems, at a lower cost.
EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan
Every two years, the EBU develops a roadmap for technology and innovation activities based on the requirements and inputs given by EBU Members. The result of this roadmap is our bi-annual EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan. Strategic programmes and project groups are set up to focus on specific areas of interest.
