Intellectual Access to Preservation Metadata Interest Group

4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

“Editing and Embedding Audio-Visual Metadata with MetaEdit”
Presented by Chris Lacinak
President, AudioVisual Preservation Solutions

Over the past three years the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) has been working on several projects related to audio-visual technical metadata. Two recent efforts have resulted in metadata recommendations and free, open-source applications, AVI MetaEdit and BWF MetaEdit, for embedding, editing and exporting metadata within AVI (video) and BWF (audio) files. FADGI has engaged Chris Lacinak, the presenter for this session, and his colleagues at AudioVisual Preservation Solutions to support the effort, including coding the applications. Chris will review the metadata recommendations and demonstrate the applications, walking the audience through use-cases to help assess the applicability of these applications for use in their own organizations.
