AudioMD and VideoMD: Technical Metadata for Audio and Video

audioMD and videoMD are XML Schemas that detail technical metadata for audio- and video-based digital objects.  They often serve as extension schemas within the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS) administrative metadata section or in PREMIS version 2.0 or later in .  They are also suitable for use as standalone metadata documents or may be considered for incorporation into other structures, e.g., as embedded metadata in Material eXchange Format (MXF) files.
