Metadata is descriptive data associated with a content asset package. It may vary in depth from merely identifying the content package title or information to populate an EPG, to providing a complete index of different scenes in a movie or providing business rules detailing how the content package may be displayed, copied, or sold. Initial efforts focus on creating specifications for Video-on-Demand (VOD) and Subscription Video-on-Demand (SVOD) applications.
