What is the aim of Masterlist Profile?

The aim of the Masterlist Profile is to allow communicating Release, Resource and Work information before any usage has been generated or before such usage is ready to be communicated.

How is a report structured?

The Materlist profile is provided in two variants. The default variant is the Multi-Record Block Variant (MRBV) where master lists are communicated using the following way:

  • A header that contains general information such as information about the sender and receiver. The header is common to all MRBV standards;
  • A set of summary records;
  • A set of blocks which make up the body of the report and which enable licensees to report masterlist information (including, where appropriate, Work, Resource and Release information); and
  • A footer that contains information about the sales/usage report such as the number of records that are included. The header is common to all MRBV standards.

DDEX has also defined a Single-Record Block Variant (SRBV) where master lists are communicated using the following way:

  • A SRBV-specific header;
  • A set of summary records;
  • A set of records where each record contains Work, Resource and Release information; and
  • A SRBV-specific footer,
  • No labels
