Paul Jessop (Chair), John Sarappo (Panelist), Julio Cesar Alvarez Fernandez (Panelist), Niels Rump (Panelist), Konstantin Vogel (Panelist) The importance of getting accurate metadata out of the studio (whatever that means these days) and into the delivery chain (and numerous other places) has never been greater. As streaming becomes dominant, performers will rely more and more on performance royalties and that requires accurate performer information. As consumers get more sophisticated in using streaming services (and others) they demand accurate metadata for discovery. How do we deliver this? The workshop will cover initiatives in DDEX (the recording industry messaging standards body) and elsewhere to make this happen.
