The DPP has published new guidance for the content supplier onboarding process with a specific focus on VoD platforms.
The guidance (titled DPP007) is based on input from 30 DPP members and aims to provide advice for the whole industry.
It sets out commonly agreed best practices which the DPP says are simple to implement and can drive significant time and cost savings. It is recommended reading for both senders and receivers of VoD content.
“Using our structured approach to facilitating industry collaboration, we identified a key item of concern in the content supply chain,” said DPP CTO, Rowan de Pomerai. “It resonated with content owners and platforms around the world, and they responded by joining the effort to improve the onboarding process for everyone involved.”
The guidance breaks down the onboarding process into a structured set of steps which enable organisations to simplify and improve communication, documentation, and technical integration.
The DPP added that work is underway on a related technical publication, Recommendation DPP008, which will explore the mapping of AMWA AS-11 metadata within the MovieLabs Digital Distribution Framework, enabling users of AS-11 to migrate to a more richly featured metadata set, driving a more common metadata approach for delivery of content to VoD platforms.
The guidance is available via the organisation’s website.
