NISO Issues New Recommended Practice on Video and Audio Metadata

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) published a new Recommended Practice, Video and Audio Metadata Guidelines.

As video and audio assets become more popular and in widespread use across scholarly and professional communities globally, various “parties in the ecosystem often employ different and potentially incompatible metadata models, causing challenges for collaboration and interoperability, and impeding the dissemination, discoverability, and indexability of video and audio content.” So, NISO issued this Recommended Practice to “provid[e] a vocabulary that enables connectivity between existing standards covering key metadata elements: administrative (e.g., dates, versions, and identifiers); semantic (e.g., subject classifications and keywords); technical (e.g., media type, encoding, and bitrate); rights (e.g., rights owner, licensor, and embargo information); and accessibility (e.g., accessibility features and access).”

For more information, read the press release.
