Metadata Exchange for News

Metadata Exchange for News enables news organisations around the world to develop and implement responsive, reactive and more efficient news production workflows.

News organisations can quickly get breaking news stories to air, by having the right metadata from the outset, allowing journalists and correspondents to focus on the story.

Rights management becomes easier as news packages and clips are clearly marked with copyright and restriction information. Content search and discovery is improved with access to keyword search and encouraging reuse of content. Automation of workflows becomes a possibility.

The DPP Metadata Exchange for News Implementation Guidelines is a standards-based framework for newsgathering and systems manufacturers to build interoperable systems that seamlessly exchange news metadata across end to end news production workflows – from planning through to broadcast and archive.
