BDS & Content Providers

BDS works with content providers of any size or specialism that produce home entertainment media, including streaming and downloadable content, across VoD, EST, DVD and Blu-ray, music, video games, audio-books and graphic novels.

There are three ways in which working with BDS helps your business:

Firstly, due to our strategic market position, BDS helps your business through the distribution of information about your products to potential buyers.

Secondly, you may use our curated BDS metadata to populate your online catalogues, use it for advertising, stock control, marketing and linking.

Thirdly, you can combine BDS metadata with BDS website and hosting services to take advantage of our complete online commercial package.

Huge Outreach

By sending BDS information about your releases you will reach our clients that include retailers, multimedia specialists, the British Library, all UK public libraries and many academic libraries throughout the UK and abroad, official bodies, charities, shopping comparators and e-marketplaces, distributors and digital platform providers.

BDS is in the unique position of generating metadata and extended content that conforms to all classifications and standards, meaning BDS permits access to all markets.

Consistent Quality

Using BDS metadata you are assured of an accurate, information-rich record that meets all current standards employed in the commercial sector, as well as those used in the library sector.

Because we are experts in the field of metadata standards, you will save time and money and avoid the pitfalls that are involved in the highly specialised process of industry-standard metadata creation which would otherwise require expert members on your staff and dedicated resources to achieve.

See our guide to metadata standards for more detailed information.

In-House and Online

When BDS receives information about your publications, it curates it so that it can be used to populate your online catalogues for presentation on your studio website while it will also be consistent with third party retailer websites that use BDS metadata. The metadata can also be used for stock control, advertising and sales, online marketing and linking between products, performers and genres.

By consistently adhering to standards while associating products with unrivalled extended content such a cover images, artist biographies, audio and video clips, track listings and contributor lists, BDS metadata offers a complete resource for studios.
