digitalmusic.org is pleased to announce the latest iteration in our white paper series, “MetaMillions: Turning Bits Into Bucks for the Music Industry Through the Standardization of Archival and Contextual Metadata.”
The white paper examines the current state of metadata collection, curation and contextualization as it relates to industry-specific processes and how this data is being shared (or not) with third-party services/retailers. The purpose was to present a business rationale for establishing a new system for metadata by showcasing the sales, marketing and other monetization benefits of a more standardized framework, and the steps necessary to create one.
Unlike the “Music & TV: Enabling Discovery for the Connected Customer” white paper written as the result of a session that took place at Music Biz 2012 and published last month in conjunction with Billboard magazine, “MetaMillions” was the work product of digitalmusic.org’s Archival & Contextual Metadata workgroup. Special thanks to workgroup co-chairs Maureen Droney of the Recording Academy’s Producers and Engineers Wing, and Paul Jessop of Country Analytics for all their help pulling this together.
