Managing the asset and instance-level metadata for Scripps' historical media portfolio is critical to their business. It affects everything from broadcast availability to viewing behavior to the ability to syndicate content to non-linear and international broadcast partners. In this session, the speakers will discuss:
- Applying graph technology to federate relevant metadata across multiple digital asset management systems into a cohesive multi-media library
- Leveraging the advantages of graph DB over traditional relational databases
- Facilitating modeling via graph technology of complex, multi-dimensional relationships between multiple domains (shows, seasons, episodes, formats & versions)
