No metadata, no information platform
Metadata and the findability of your digital assets
In short, metadata is the enrichment of files with additional descriptive information such as the author, relevant topics, the language or the location of a picture.
Metadata is extremely important to guarantee the successful operation of a Digital or Media asset management software. Only by metadataing correctly can you ensure fast retrieval of your images, video and audio content, digital documents, etc.
The three types of metadata
Types of metadata
This includes information regarding origin, identification and interpretation. Descriptive metadata includes data such as title, author, date, etc.
Management includes information on ownership, provenance, GDPR and reuse, accountability for management activities and so on. Management metadata is therefore data such as retention periods, selection lists and rights.
Technical metadata are very important for data management. These data tell us, for example, the type of file format, the resolution, etc.
