AVI MetaEdit supports embedding and validating metadata in RIFF-based Audiovisual Interleave format (AVI) video files. AVI is currently the target format for creation of Preservation Masters within the Digitization Services Branch at the National Archives.
ReVTMD is an XML schema tailored to include fields that address the creation and long term management of reformatted videos, especially within the cultural heritage community. It is a concise subset of the large array of technical metadata available, structured in a way to make it highly usable for accessing and managing all types of video files beyond AVI.
FADGI and NARA
