Copyright and descriptive metadata in moving images- Free event, London, June 27th 2019 @ UCL

The Media Institute and the Copyright Hub free open event on metadata preservation and discovery in moving images. It will take place on Thursday, June 27th at UCL in Central London, from 14:00-17:00.

Moving image media travels through an abundance of workflows – from production to distribution to archive to re-purposing. And throughout these journeys valuable metadata is created, often at great expense, and then lost.

At this event we want to discuss a ‘round trip’ for metadata, ensuring its preservation. We will focus on copyright and descriptive metadata – the types of metadata requiring human effort or sophisticated AI to create – and how it can be retained safely across the workflow.

Tools created during the LUCID Rights (Leveraging Uncertainty in Content and Metadata to Enable Indelible Digital Rights) initiative will be demonstrated, illustrating the round trip for copyright metadata.

We will seek your feedback about these tools and your input about their future development direction. Your views will help shape both LUCID and future projects already in the pipeline.
