    Key Markets

    Major broadcasters such as DR, TV 2, SBS Discovery, Viasat and C More deliver metadata with actual airing times and content rights, which increases the accuracy for recordings and enablement of smooth rights management. With access to all official press sites, APIs and playout feeds, we provide near realtime updates (NRTs). The Danish broadcasters have in previous years constantly pushed big operators such as TDC, Stofa, and Waoo to implement this – however, both in terms of metadata and middleware, this has proven to be difficult. At Simply.TV, we guarantee that the metadata requirements from the broadcasters are met to ensure high quality and accurate data.

    The Public Schedule format has for years been dominating the Swedish metadata space through a XML format. SVT, TV4 and several operators (Boxer / Com Hem and Tele2) have adapted to this format, which is critical for implementations. Most recently, several broadcasters have continued with PS, but with delivery through Clipsource, which we have modified our ingest processes to accommodate.

    NRK and TV 2 have like broadcasters in Sweden pushed for normalization of the data standards, exploring XML TVA as a common data delivery format. With recent launches of new platforms by Altibox, Canal Digital and RiksTV, the need for high quality metadata is increasing.

    The Finnish market is notoriously known for their lack of consistent broadcaster metadata. Venetsia has been orchestrating the metadata delivery for major broadcasters for many years. With the time, it has been easier to bypass Venetsia and access data directly from APIs from YLE, MTV3 and Nelonen. For the Finnish market, the multilingual mix of Swedish and Finnish data from major broadcasters should not be underestimated – a strong requirement from customers such as Elisa, DNA and Telia Company.

    The number of unique Icelandic broadcasters is limited, but the market is highly influenced by Nordics and pan-European channels with dedicated feeds and metadata. The lineups from both Siminn and Vodafone Iceland indicate this challenge, where à la carte offerings have also gained focus in the product offerings and increased the number of channels being offered. Enrichment for Iceland content is still a challenge for domestic broadcasters such as Stod2 and SkjárEinn. We will help out for further improvements, if your company needs it.

    The German speaking area has remained a challenge for metadata providers for ages – especially due to the VG Media terms and conditions. With an advanced rights management system, we are able to provide you with both copyright and copyright free material depending our your agreements. Other broadcasters also remain a challenge due to poorly structured datasets and lack of updates – with agreements for playout datasets, we have solved this. This requirement has been seen in RFPs from both Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone / Kabel Deutschland, Unity Media/LGI as well as streaming services such as Magine TV and Zattoo.
