Metadata Aggregator

Date Last Updated: April 15, 2021

There is no single standard for metadata content identifiers which makes mapping alternate identifiers across ecosystems commonplace, but no less cumbersome. Commercial metadata aggregators typically leverage a proprietary content identifier specific to their ecosystem, such as TMS ID for Gracenote or Cosmo ID for Tivo.
