NDIIPP Partners Meeting July 21, 2010 Washington, DC
Project overview Background: Genesis of the project started with The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing Deliverables Committee (established 2002) NDIIPP Grant awarded in 2007 to BMS/Chace Constituency: Record Labels (major and independent), Artists, Engineers, Producers and other participants involved in the commercial recording process
Project overview Issues/ Problems: No consistent information collected during the recording process (technical and descriptive metadata) Who are the participants and their roles? How can we connect metadata from beginning to vaulting? Are we supporting existing standards? How can we make the documentation process as “painless” as possible? How can labels ingest the metadata into existing IT infrastructures?
Commercial metadata needs are different Institutional vs. commercial standards INSTITUTIONS are generally aware of their holdings at a basic level (cataloged objects) INSTITUTIONS typically have a “best-practices” workflow to insure consistency of metadata ingest COMMERCIAL USERS of recorded assets typically do not have “end-to-end” life cycle or digital asset management systems in place COMMERCIAL USERS are driven by market forces that can override the collection of metadata
Current Status of Project Collection Application Now Exists! Launch meetings scheduled for Nashville, Los Angeles, and New York City at Recording Academy offices Cross-platform Ease of use a high priority Depth of metadata collection is left to the user Will export metadata to project schema Working with DDEX to “complete the loop” between creation and ecommerce
Obstacles The economy directly impacted some of our initial partners (changed names and job functions) Peer review of data dictionaries, field names, etc. is difficult – those who will benefit most from the project are not easily engaged into this dialog If our work is not integrated into other commercial standards (DDEX, ISO, ISWC, CISAC), then we have not helped the problem
Next steps Education Recording Academy’s 12 U.S Chapters GRAMMY University Network Student Membership Outreach Continue working with standards organizations to promote transparency in commerce Conferences, workshops, panels Alliances with industry organizations; AES, APRS, DDEX, CISAC, and others Blogs, free hosting/ FTP for a limited time
