Exchange of BMF-Compliant Metadata in TV Production

"IRT's new data model Broadcast Metadata exchange Format (BMF) in the Version 1.0 is now available.

The aim of BMF (Broadcast Metadata exchange Format) is a uniform, generic model for metadata in the field of television production. The data model maximises interoperability among all broadcasters and production sectors.

BMF provides the universal exchange of metadata in the television production and for this reason BMF will bring down costs and risks when integrating data interfaces. Interested companies can receive a detailed specification of the BMF class model after online-registration."
