AS-11 Metadata Validator

The Digital Production Partnership (DPP) is an industry-funded non-profit partnership that advocates and promotes the many benefits associated with digital production for broadcast television.

The DPP have recently defined the AS-11 metadata specification. AS-11 specifies a vendor-neutral subset of the MXF file format to use for delivery of finished programming from program producers and program distributors to broadcast stations. AS-11 defines a minimal core metadata set required in all AS-11 files, a program segmentation metadata scheme, and permits inclusion of custom shim-specific metadata in the MXF file.

Blue Lucy Media makes available an AS-11 Validator, a simple and free tool which interrogates a given file, displays the AS-11 specific metadata and highlight a missing or invalid metadata.
