Innovator to Leverage Universal ID in the Netherlands
Redwood City, CA, November 10, 2014. – Bindinc. is the latest technology innovator to join the Entertainment ID Registry (EIDR), the coalition promoting the use of a unique, global identifier of entertainment assets including films and television episodes. Bindinc. is the largest publisher of television guides in the Netherlands. Their Program Data division offers services to broadcasters and provides metadata for linear and non-linear content to publishers, distributors and providers.
“Bindinc. is excited to join the EIDR organization and strengthen our services,” said Barent Momma, CEO of the company. “We are one of the leading providers of metadata for publishers and content distributors in the Netherlands. Whether it’s a data feed for an electronic program guide or ready-made print pages for a weekly guide or newspaper, the EIDR registry will help us accurately match, combine and integrate data from multiple 3rd party sources and our own editorial systems. With platforms evolving constantly, EIDR is setting a standard in metadata exchange and we are pleased to be part of this development and be able to maintain the highest possible standard of service to our customers.”
“We’re delighted to welcome Bindinc. as a key strategic player in the Netherlands and Europe,” stated Don Dulchinos, Executive Director of EIDR. “EIDR members among broadcasters and distributors increasingly depend on partners like Bindinc. and standards like EIDR to rationalize multiple sources of guide data and enhanced metadata as consumer platforms continue to proliferate.”
The EIDR content identifier and related platform APIs, tools, and solutions, can be used efficiently by all actors of the digital video value chain. Advertising, multiplatform distribution, measurement and tracking, are only a few of the digital workflows that can be enhanced by EIDR identifiers. Interested parties are encouraged to visit www.eidr.org to learn about other types of implementations and to express interest in participating.
