IMZ Metadata Standard
An inclusive standard
To tackle the challenges of digitalisation, the IMZ developed a Metadata Standard that establishes a unified format for content data sets. This allows consistency + compatible structures for a wide range of industry players. Integrated into Content.Agent, the IMZ Metadata Standard also makes it easier to browse + find the right asset (film/music file, literary piece, artistic work etc.), increases content visibility and guarantees compatibility between buyers + sellers.
The IMZ Metadata Standard ensures:
- High-quality metadata requirements for simple, fast and cost-efficient content
trade – less time spent on data maintenance.
- Streamlined + automated data processing for a faster + time-efficient content trade.
- Facilitated browsing + searching for content.
- Increased visibility of assets.
The IMZ Metadata Standard is inclusive of all forms of content, including music + film.
Any content can be classified in a uniform and universal structure. In turn, content is traded, protected + handled more efficiently, helping buyers, sellers and distributors trade more time and cost-efficiently – actively shaping the film trading business.
The IMZ Metadata Standard runs on sustainable technology: it uses XML structure, proven to be sustainable, flexible and easily compatible with other systems.
