Paris, France, June 7, 2016. – CINFO, a Spanish cloud video and EPG provider, just joined the Entertainment ID Registry (EIDR), the consortium promoting the use of a unique, global identifier of entertainment assets including films and television episodes. The EIDR coalition is organized as an industry non-profit, and is comprised of key stakeholders from content owners, video post-production houses, content distributors, retailers, entertainment services and technology provider companies.
“CINFO, subsidiary of R, telecommunications operator in Galicia (Spain), is a multi-offering provider of solutions for video and metadata applications”, said Xabier Ferreiro, CCO of CINFO. “Many of our customers realize that video distribution now means paying attention to the metadata which accompanies the video, and this means that content identification in a digital world needs to be solved”.
“We’re delighted to welcome CINFO as our first Spain headquartered member” stated Don Dulchinos, Executive Director of EIDR. “As the world of content distribution now looks to expanding International markets, the EIDR identifier helps automate, and thus accelerate opportunities for local content to go abroad, be recognized, and be handled seamlessly across the digital ecosystem”.
“The EIDR registry will help us automate metadata workflows, and help support complex and rich distribution use cases, audience measurement and more”, said Dario Janeiro, CINFO Content Director. “We are constantly advancing the coverage and depth of our metadata products, and doing it with a worldwide supported, standards based approach was the right way to go”.
The EIDR content identifier and related platform APIs, tools, and solutions, can be used efficiently by all the 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.
