The existence of a globally recognised unique identifier for all audio-video content is seen by DPP Members as a Holy Grail. Such a system is regarded as essential for the effective exploitation of content data. Unique identifiers already exist; but is it possible to build on this work to create a protocol that will work for all? The DPP will undertake exploratory work in this area in 2017.
We will hold a scoping workshop in Q1 2017 to evaluate all use cases and potential technologies for defining unique IDs. The output of this work will be a User Guide for implementing unique IDs across your production.
Following that workshop, the working group will meet monthly to complete this work.
