Avails Metadata Workgroup


The Avails Workgroup is comprised of members from platforms, content providers, service providers and industry groups. The workgroup provides ongoing support for the EMA Avails Specification including updates for emerging use cases and implementation guidance across members. The EMA Avails Specification was developed in collaboration with Movielabs and includes both Excel and XML formats. The specification provides a standard method for content providers to communicate detailed rights data about content licensed by platforms enabling complete and accurate publishing.
