DVB Metadata

 

This page lists and briefly describes all generic, and application domain specific XML and JSON Schemas and Classification Schemes published by DVB. These files are available under the URL root https://www.dvb.org/metadata/. Presence of an XML or JSON document under that URL root implies its status as a formal DVB publication.

Where DVB uses URNs to identify DVB metadata definitions, these URNs conform to clauses 5 and 7 of ETSI TS 102 851.

Compared to the metadata definition files that can be obtained from the ETSI website in ZIP files along with the specification documents, the file location attributes in some files available from the DVB website have been modified. This was done to accommodate the structure of the DVB website, and for instance document authors' convenience by enabling automatic handling of the files by authoring tools. These modifications do hence not affect instance documents in any way.

Third Party Files

DVB's metadata definitions build upon metadata definitions from other organisations and standards by reusing elements from them. For this to be supported by authoring tools, all files referenced by the DVB files must also be available to the authoring tool. Most often, these other organisations also make their files available online. Where this is not the case, we provide copies under the URL root https://www.dvb.org/3rdparty/. DVB provides these files for completeness, and they are not to be considered canonical. If, for any of them, you are aware of an official online location that could be referenced instead, please contact us at webmaster@dvb.org. For convenience, all necessary metadata definitions from other organisations (whether available from their originating organisation or from the DVB website) are also listed in the XML catalog files and included in the complete DVB metadata ZIP archive.

Installation and Use

To further help authoring automation, XML catalog files are also provided. These will help authoring tools to make use of DVB metadata definitions for document validation, content completion, etc. To directly use the files provided from the DVB website, simply add the URL of the top-level XML catalog file to the list of XML catalog files consulted by your authoring tool. For as long as you have an Internet connection, you will now be able to make use of all DVB metadata definitions to the extent provided by your authoring tool. If you want to be able to use the DVB metadata files also when offline, download the complete DVB metadata ZIP archive, unpack it in a convenient location on your system, and add the file DVB/metadata/catalog.xml to the list of XML catalog files consulted by your authoring tool. Even when offline, you will now be able to make use of all DVB metadata definitions to the extent provided by your authoring tool.

Generic Metadata Definitions Generic metadata definitions are applicable to more than one application domain, and are thus generally referenced by application specific metadata definitions.

XML Schemas

DVB Classification Scheme schema

This schema defines a schema for authoring classification schemes. It is derived from the TV-Anytime CS schema in that the form of the termIDType is restricted by a pattern, and the TextualType is extended by an optional language attribute. It however is backwards compatible with the TV-Anytime schema, and CS entries can therefore be referenced using the tva:controlledTermType.

All DVB classification schemes, whether generic or domain specific, are instance documents of this schema.

Classification Schemes

This section lists all XML Classification Schemes (CS) defined by DVB in alphabetical order. These CS are written against the urn:dvb:metadata:schema:dvbCSschema:2007 namespace.

Audio codec classification scheme

This CS complements the MPEG-7 Audio Coding Format CS by adding the DVB defined audio codecs not part of the MPEG-7CS:

  • MPEG-4 DVB Audio
  • MPEG-4 High Efficiency Advanced Audio Profile
  • MPEG-4 High Efficiency Advanced Audio v2 Profile
  • AMR DVB
  • AC-3

XML Schemas

Service Discovery and Selection (SDnS)

See clause 5 of TS 102 034. Service discovery is the mechanism enabling the discovery of DVB-IPTV services available over bi-directional IP network. The service discovery results in the presentation of a list of services with sufficient information for the user to make a choice and access the chosen service. Selection takes place after the user has made a choice about which service to view. Live Media Broadcast, Content on Demand (CoD) and Content Download Services (CDS) are covered. Two types of Live Media broadcast services have been identified: broadcast services with DVB SI embedded in the stream (referenced as "TS Full SI") and broadcast services without in-band SI except for MPEG PSI (referenced as "TS optional SI").

Content Download Service (CDS)

See clause 10 of TS 102 034. Content Download Services (CDS) allow for non-realtime download of content items to local storage of an IPTV client via a broadband IP connection. A CDS can be used to provide IPTV services in areas where a broadband connection suitable for streaming services is not available or prone to transmission errors, for simultaneous delivery of multiple content items to IPTV clients, or for reduced cost IPTV offers since - unlike streaming services - the data rate consumption of a CDS can be throttled.

FLUTE Multicast System Renewability Message (SRM) Download

See clause 12.5.2 of TS 102 034. An important function of Content Protection (CP) Systems is the renewability in the field of important parts of the system implementation in order to replace or revoke such parts which have been compromised and fail in further preventing undesired use of content. This renewability information is conveyed to consumer equipment in the form of System Renewability Messages (SRM). SRM services are announced in Service Discovery and Selection (SDnS), and an IPTV client can obtain SRM data via HTTP unicast, or FLUTE (see RFC 3926) multicast services. The FLUTE FDT is extended by DVB to convey the CP System ID, CP System SRM ID, and SRM file version number for each SRM file. This schema defines the DVB extensions to the FLUTE File Delivery Table (FDT) structure for SRM delivery.

Mandatory Basic Description

The mandatory metadata description is designed to be easily generated from either TV-Anytime or IPDC ESG based metadata descriptions. This basic description provides an interoperability point to assist in the interchange of content between devices. The basic description can take one of two forms. The first form (FileContentInformation) contains information about a program, at a minimum the title, but it may be populated with additional information such as is typically provided by DVB SI, the IPDC ESG, the IPTV BCG or TV-Anytime data carried over a transport stream. The second form (SelfRecordingInfo) contains only a description of the recording and will typically be used where the user initiates a recording and may include such details as the time of the recording and a description of the channels recorded. See clause 5.1.4 of TS 102 833.
