Main session in the morning

Moving Images - Moving Metadata?
Video Metadata in Practice

Photo and video businesses are getting closer, many photo suppliers are extending their business to video. The companies which have started with photos are interested in using the same metadata fields with video as they do with photos.

This conference will help to extend the management of metadata from known photo-related procedures to the moving images. This conference also aims at pinning down business requirements for precise annotations of video content.

* Your experience and practice

Presentation of the results of a video/photo metadata practice survey among CEPIC members.

* Views of video businesses

Presentations and discussions by representatives from companies and organisations with a long term focus on video and its metadata and from companies just extending to video.


  • Thierry Berger, Project Manager, Prisma Media
  • Ashley Byford-Bates, Global Head of Reuters Pictures and Archive Products, Thomson Reuters

  • ... and more

* How software can help you

Afternoon breakout sessions

Sessions in the afternoon will focus special facets of metadata:

Metadata of Cultural Heritage images

A meeting of people with interest in the progress of Cultural Heritage efforts for extended and more precise metadata of images.

Moderator: Sarah Saunders, Electric Lane

Metadata Technology: how to make metadata sticking to videos

A meeting of people with interest in taming a big challenge of video metadata: there are big binary files and small metadata - how to combine them best to be flexible and not to lose the metadata in workflows.


The programme is aimed at all who are interested in managing metadata of video in a way which aligns with existing photo metadata concepts and workflows.
