Content Discovery: Metadata2018-11-02T13:43:33+00:00

Successful content discovery relies on great metadata!

Our services make use of the long-standing expertise of the program metadata from FUNKE Programmzeitschriften GmbH – and yours can, too!

Trust the experts

For more than 60 years, audiences have come to rely on publications from FUNKE Mediengruppe such as TV DIGITAL and HÖRZU to guide them to content worth watching. The editorial expertise behind these media properties goes into our program metadata. Our strongest brands are market leaders in their segments and have completed the digital transition to become cross-media platforms. They enjoy high credibility and a high level of awareness, and are perceived as trend-setting.

Field-proven technology

Our EPG metadata has been specifically refined to power sophisticated features like our Recommendation Engine. It is used by the majority of Germany’s large cable and IPTV operators as well as by a host of websites, apps, and start-ups.

High-quality EPG data

The more detailed the metadata, the better the recommendations will be able to match user preferences. Our software is backed up by an enormous store of editorially-enhanced film and TV metadata & reviews as supplied by 100+ editors.

The database includes:

  • more than 550 national and international channels, including HD channels (simulcast to SD) and video on-demand channels (VOD)

  • Series Profiles: Over 3,500 series profiles provide detailed information about seasons and episodes

  • Keywords / categories: 17 broad categories and more than 2,300 genre/sub-genre combinations

  • Individual keyword lists can be added to every data set to let modern search and recommender systems work more efficiently
