Information about a forthcoming DDEX Standard
DDEX is in the latter stages of developing a new standard for the communication of Media Enrichment and Description information (MEAD) to augment the data shared using the Release Notification Delivery Standards (ERN). The ERN Standards are mainly focused on providing data for the digital supply chain and to enable subsequent rights management activities using other DDEX Standards. MEAD is a means by which to provide data about parties, releases, resources such as sound recordings, and works which would not normally be seen in the data used in supply chain or rights management activities. In MEAD this includes such things as Awards awards information or charting information and a great deal more besides.
