Digital Town Square

Speakers at DTS, February 2014

On Thursday, February 27th, the ETC@USC hosted another Digital Town Square at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. This event, the fourth in a series, was entitled: “Metadata Meets Big Data: New Opportunities for Content Distribution.”

Industry leaders participated in a 360° forum about the challenges and opportunities for harnessing metadata and big data to boost monetization of digital content. The event featured presentations of cutting-edge solutions for systemizing and optimizing metadata on the program, scene and frame level and for mining meta-tags to enhance consumer discovery and experience. Discussion centered on how to maximize core as well as valued-added and promotional content; how to develop efficient, interoperable distribution systems in a highly-fragmented, constantly evolving landscape; tapping the vast pool of meta-tags and audience data to build audience share and to personalize search and recommendations; standards and best practices; and more.
