Metadata is key to smoothing workflows from the capture of the image through to post production. Iain Hazlewood talks to some of the key players in this developing field:

• Jacques Delacoux, president Aaton Transvideo
• Christophe Casenave, Product Manager, Cine Products, Carl Zeiss AG
• Klaus Grosser, R&D Manager, Ambient Recording
• Patrick Renner, Pomfort

Metadata automatically records every shot’s focal length, focus distance, aperture and serial number from the lens, and from the camera gathers active image area, frame rate and shutter angle for every frame. Now all of that data is available right through the shooting and production process.

The real wonder here is that no one fell off their stool. Apologies to the nearby exhibitor from whose stand we stole them from.
