IMZ STANDARDS

Internationally agreed by experts for a modern global film market

The digitalisation of the global audiovisual sector calls for basic agreements in order for transactions
to take place in a way that is efficient, safe + satisfactory for all market players.

The IMZ + its member organisations, key market players in the music + dance film industry, respond to this global demand by defining a new set of standards within the framework of the development of Content.Agent that is bound to revolutionise the audiovisual industry.

IMZ Standards on Metadata + Copyright ensure compatibility between market players, strengthen industry cooperation
and ensure legal security in transactions with cutting-edge technology!

IMZ METADATA STANDARD

The audiovisual industry requires a metadata standard that is compatible with existing systems + includes information specific to music + dance films. The IMZ is making this a reality!

UNIQUE ISCC FILM IDENTIFIER

The IMZ + the ISCC Foundation are developing what exists for books: a non-profit standard film identification code. Content-based film identification will be possible for any clip longer than 2 secs!

EUROPEAN LICENCE LEDGER

The European Licence Ledger is a digital register for film licences, which combined with the ISCC Film Identifier guarantees state-of-the-art copyright protection thanks to blockchain technology.
