º Develop multiple delivery systems for the metadata architecture.
º Provide extensive proof-of-concept testing through a video access web-based portal.
º Disseminate draft and final products to a wide audience of digital video developers and managers
º Encourage use of the metadata architecture through presentations, training
and a significant web presence.
