  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2021.1.0.10  Published OnlineJune 2021

EN 17650 is a proposed new European Standard for the digital preservation of cinematographic works. It allows organizing of content in a systematic way, the so called Cinema Preservation Package (CPP). The standard defines methods to store content in physical and logical structures and describes relationships and metadata for its components. The CPP uses existing XML schemes, in particular METS, EBUCore and PREMIS to store structural, descriptive, technical and provenance metadata. METS XML files with their core metadata contain physical and logical structures of the content, hash values and UUIDs to ensure data integrity and links to external metadata files to enrich the content with additional information. The content itself is stored based on existing public and industry standards, avoiding unnecessary conversion steps. The paper explains the concepts behind the new standard and specifies the usage and combinations of existing schemes with newly introduced metadata parameters.
