(If you have a smaller catalog of works, you should consider using our simple Content Registration Portal. The process described in this article is appropriate for organizations with larger catalogs.)
Rights holders "fingerprint" and register their media catalogs with Audible Magic's information services to express how they want their works treated by Internet sites and other forms of digital distribution. For more information about what registering with Audible Magic can do for you, please read http://www.audiblemagic.com/content-registration.
Content Registration Tools for Professional Organizations
Here in the Audible Magic Help Desk, software tools and processes are provided for professional media organizations to integrate content registration into their release and distribution workflows. These are simple tools. To use them you must be able to:
- use software utilities launched from a Windows or Linux command line interface
- create an XML file containing the metadata for each work being registered
- use SFTP services
If your company does not have the above technical expertise, please consider using an Audible Magic registration partner.
Getting Started with Audible Magic Content Registration
Choose a Technical Coordinator:
Designate a technical coordinator in your organization to manage your content registration process. This person must have a working familiarity with the Linux or Windows command line interface and must be able to connect to an SFTP account created by Audible Magic.
