We'll be discussing personal desires and industry sector solutions to problems and frustrations within our current global content distribution system/marketplace. These solutions will be blue sky and/or here and now. Quick fix and/or way off in the future. What would they look like? What would you like to see? Have a think beforehand so that you come prepared.
If you are able please bring along recording equipment (video and/or audio) so that we can make a record of the day. Let me know if you not happy being recorded.
How do content owners increase the visibility and discovery of their content? Do we need more metadata standards for cross-media description? What's wrong with ones we already have? Does more effort need to be made to implement those that already exist? Should standards groups build more end-user tools? What are the drivers for industry adoption? Can we make the tools simpler and easier to use? What are the requirements of end-users in the media industry?
Tools enabling metadata aggregation, searching and publishing could be vastly improved. The lack of support and interoperability is having a profound impact on the ability of all media industry sectors to monetise their products.
Bringing together key cross-industry business strategists and technologists from music, film, image, search, standards, publishing, interactive and gaming organisations shaping the digital media marketplace. Aiming to share experiences, discover synergy and innovate. Identifying areas for further investigation to drive adoption of metadata syndication ecosystems that enable content owners to increase visibility of their content.
The morning will feature short, sharp business strategy and technology briefings from many experts. Participants will benefit from the experiences of their counterparts in other arts, media and technology.
