The Sixth Annual Metadata Summit is for experts, by experts — the program will amplify the importance of data, provide a high level forum for discussion, and attract key participants.

This panel discusses and demystifies the purpose, practical application and value of capturing metadata at the point of inception- in the studio.

This panel will engage all those with a vested interest in the collection and propagation of quality metadata, including; engineers, producers, production engineers, songwriters, performers, seconds and production coordinators across different genres and parts of the industry - thereby creating a cross section of contemporary voices to add insight to this crucial aspect of industry growth.

Metadata Summit Supporting Sponsors include DataArt, primephonic, SOCAN, SoundExchange, and VEVA Sound.
