P-META: Program Data Exchange in Practice

Wes Curtis & Alison McCarthy
BBC Television, London, UK

Program metadata is a key commodity for broadcasters and their audiences. The ability to capture and exchange metadata easily within the organization and with external partners in a timely manner while retaining quality is vital. The BBC is evaluating P-META, the EBU standard language for program data exchange. We will present a nontechnical overview of P-META, the opportunities it offers, and the ways in which the BBC aims to use it.
