Metadata is becoming more important than ever in media production and distribution as it is metadata that drives the ROI on our media assets. The reason is simple. The more knowledge we have about an asset, the greater value we can get from it. A really simple example would be basic descriptive metadata such as title and description. This enables us to find the assets we own (e.g., in archive) and use and reuse them.

The space is more than 6,000 square feet and includes three studios.
Sports fans and entertainment buffs have a high bar for their live streaming experiences, demanding outstanding performances on any device, quick start times, and no buffering. Viewers also want more live streamed content than ever, and, increasingly, in vivid 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution.

For broadcasters and over-the-top (OTT) TV service providers, meeting all these expectations with traditional network delivery technologies is a tall order.
