EBUCore 1.8 takes into account latest developments in the Semantic Web and Linked Open Data communities. A link to EBUCore RDF ontology and its documentation is provided in the "download zone". The EBUCore RDF ontology has been updated to match EBU's CCDM (Tech 3351) needs and improve mapping with other ontologies. EBUCore RDF is listed as Linked Open Vocabulary as well as RDF-Vocab for Ruby developers.

EBUCore 1.8 provides a solution for dynamic acquisition metadata, a unique representation of the ITU-R BS.2076 Audio Data Model (ADM). Now 'props', 'costumes', 'timed text, ''actions and ''emotions' (among others) can be associated to scenes and persons or character. High Dynmamic Range static technical metadata and Virtual Reality flags has been added to the videoFormat element.
