VEVA Sound was founded in 2002 and now has offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville and London. For the past 16 years we have worked to define, create and implement the standards for how sound recordings are preserved and monetized. In 2008, The Recording Academy's Producer and Engineers Wing partnered with VEVA Sound and The Library of Congress to create a standardized protocol for music-related metadata that would travel with recorded music projects from inception to archive. Other partners in this project include many of our clients: UMG, Sony, EMI and Disney Music Group. The output of this project was a schema we created that was then adopted into DDEX. This schema is the underlying foundation of the DDEX RIN message. We are so proud to have been involved in the inception of efforts to define how studio metadata and credits are used within the Digital Supply Chain.
