BBC to give all staff desktop access to archived metadata 

Staff across the BBC will soon have access to the metadata contained within the broadcaster’s archive from their desktop computers.

The archive function is the latest addition to the Digital Media Initiative (DMI) project’s file-based toolset, known as Fabric.

 BBC chief technology officer John Linwood told Broadcast the broadcaster expects to begin making the archive function available to everyone in the BBC within a couple of months.

 “All of the heavy users are already on DMI and over the coming months more and more of the peripheral users will come on board,” said Linwood.

“It is limited to 2,500 users at the moment and, once they are happy and it has settled down, we will open it up to everyone.
