The Escenic Content Engine incorporates a metadata extraction facility that can extract the metadata embedded in some types of binary file and automatically inject it into content item fields. The standard facility supplied with the Content Engine supports the extraction of EXIF and IPTC metadata embedded in JPEG image files. The type of information typically embedded in this way includes items such as the photographer's name, copyright information, the date a photograph was taken and so on.
The metadata extraction facility incorporates a plug-in interface, which Java programmers can use to:
Control the metadata extracted
Control how extracted metadata is injected into content items
Add support for other binary file formats and metadata formats.
