Metadata Modelling

Helps Members to get the most out of their existing metadata and share best practice.

The EBU and its members have been active in the metadata domain for many years. The scope of use of metadata evolves permanently as the strategic importance and volume of metadata grow. The MIM-MM project is a community of experts and implementers keen to learn and contribute.
