Metadata is a wide topic approached from a variety of perspectives across the broadcasting industry. Collecting views and sharing expertise is a challenge starting by connecting with the right audience. The Metadata Developer Network is set up to organize workshops to discuss new trends and latest research or applied developments with metadata experts from all horizons.
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.
