RegisterA tremendous amount of information is generated during the creation of modern content. Metadata, which used to be simple title, actors, genre and description has exploded  into a wealth of information harvested from scriptwriting, scheduling, budgeting and numerous other sources. Capturing and utilizing this metadata can create opportunities for new revenue streams in Over The Top (OTT) and Social Media platforms.
