Automated, digital processes for the media industry.

Access to metadata is an essential part of all internal processes such as planning, production and distribution. In addition, important accompanying processes such as research, clarification of rights, and billing are involved. With the Media Data Hub, metadata can be collected, generated, and managed company-wide.

It combines all relevant information across various specialized systems to provide a unified, cross-media view of media objects. Missing metadata is automatically filled in using methods from data analysis, artificial intelligence and Linked Data. The Media Data Hub serves as a central hub for metadata, both as a data provider for third-party systems and as a central platform for mining services, algorithms, and models.

Use Cases

  1. Cross-media research in media archives
  2. Data collection for accounting workflows (e.g. Gema)
  3. The attainment of information claims (e.g., copyright information)
  4. The generation of metadata for video SEO
