In Frame Time Based Descriptive Metadata (IFTBD)

  • Vendor


In Frame Time Based Descriptive Metadata (IFTBD) is the capability to input time-based descriptive metadata to any person, object or event, and record that meta-tag as either an in-frame metric and/or based upon the asset time code. This allows for an assets multiple distinct definable characteristics to be placed within the asset as an in frame metric. The descriptive capacity allows for every definable data element including Administrative, Technical, Rights Management, Preservation/Archive, Discovery metadata with any in frame point. Thus complete metadata 'ground truth' of a digital asset can be captured for optimized search and discovery. The In Frame Time Based Descriptive capacity creates its own organizational ability for optimized search particularly if controlled vocabularies and taxonomies are employed.

IFTBD metadata can be applied to all digital asset formats including still photographs (not time based), linear video and immersive/360 content. This is important to immersive/360 content given the area covered in a frame is 5x larger than that covered in a linear or standard video frame. The description length capability for any tag is near unlimited and output data include tag orientation in frame: in and out times and duration of tag. All IFTBD metadata can be outputted as CSV File, Embed XMP or XMP sidecar and move smoothly through all workflows.

In Frame Time Based Descriptive Metadata (IFTBD) is a term devised by Microstocksolutions and used in their VRmeta application.
