At FIAT/IFTA World Conference 2019 rai Teche presents the work:
“Multimedia certification of the rights in RAI: a way to encourage the use of archival contents”
The rights management plays a key role in the transition of RAI from a radio broadcasting company to a “media company”. The new exploitation scenarios oblige to have an efficient rights management system in order to permit a rapid and correct use of content.
Since 2016, RAI has adopted a new rights management system based on the MPEG-21 Media Contract Ontology. This standard allows the expression of rights in a flexible, unambiguous and machine-readable way. The central element of the system is the “rights sheet”, where all rights’ information of a product is collected.
In order to create a link between these rights sheets and the multimedia file of a program, RAI is going to release a multimedia certification system of the rights. The users of this new system will be the operators of the Right Archive, the sector currently in charge of the right clearance activity, who will establish how to connect the audio/video files to the rights sheets. For example, in case of an inserted footage or contractual restrictions from performers, multiple links can be created within the same program, selecting the sequences to be associated with a specific rights sheet.
Once the connections are in place, professional users of RAI Multimedia Catalogue will be able to employ rights as a search filter and to know the main exploitation permissions of a program. This will hopefully reduce the number of rights clearance requests to the Rights Archive team and simplify the use of archival contents.
