EBS joins EIDR

March 24, 2015

EBS, a full-service provider of EPG data for platforms and channels worldwide, is now a member of the Entertainment Identifier Registry Association (EIDR).  Founded by Movielabs, Cablelabs, Comcast and Rovi, EIDR is a not-for-profit industry association that meets a crucial need across the entertainment supply chain, providing universal identifiers for a broad array of audio visual objects.

Don Dulchinos, Executive Director, EIDR commented, “We’re delighted to have EBS on board. The company occupies a strategic position in the content distribution supply chain as well as a leadership position in the industry, globally. As European content owners are increasingly discovering EIDR, and EIDR enabled content is starting to arrive in European digital distribution channels, EBS brings to light metadata and workflow related use cases.”

To enable effective monetisation of assets through an increasing number of distribution channels, EIDR provides industry promoters, contributors and partners with a global registry of unique identifiers for entertainment content and video services, and an API-based Operational Enterprise Solution for real-time registry access.
