SMPTE Publishes MESA’s Language Metadata Table Standard, Providing Needed Codes For 200+ Languages

The Society of Motion and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the leading standards governing body for media & entertainment engineering, today announced it has joined with the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA), a leading community of media technology executives, to co-develop the Language Metadata Table (LMT) standard. This is the first project that SMPTE has undertaken to electronically publish machine-readable metadata as a standard that is expected to be used operationally rather than by application developers. It is anticipated to significantly streamline media asset management around the globe.
