At the Cable Show 2013, Digitalsmiths launched its Unified Data Service, designed to create a single index where multiple video-related data sources are ingested, aggregated, reconciled and stored. It's intended to enable video service providers to utilize enhanced metadata for the management of video data, as well as improve video discovery.Video discovery applications require hundreds of data sources such as images, reviews, ratings, statistics, awards, cast, directors, schedule data, and merchandising all hidden in their own silo. Digitalsmiths' Unified Data Service is deigned to remove those data silos by aggregating multiple structured and unstructured data sources and normalizing the attributes to create a master collection of metadata.
