MetaRex is like Fedex for metadata.
  • Sender
    • The Sender wraps their metadata in a standardized container.
    • A label is applied to identify the contents
    • The mapper puts the container on a transport: NDI, ST 2110, email, FTP etc.
  • Receiver
    • The receiver takes the containers from the transport
    • The unwrapper reads the label to handle the data as clocked / unclocked, text / binary
    • The unwrapper extracts the metadata and may use a web service to do something automatic with the data e.g. make an overlay / transcode to the receiver’s preferred format.
    • The end user now has access to, potentially, several variants of the metadata before they write their first line of code.
