Net-X-Copy - Metadata Extraction

verifycc icon

Net-X-Copy is part of the Net-X-Convert/Net-X-Proxy workstation and Net-X-Code server software. It supports, among other things, extracting an XMP XML of the metadata in a media file or series of media files. It extracts both the basic information for each channel and any camera/workflow specific metadata. This article contains the Linux/macOS/Windows command line API for this tool.  A RESTful API is also available.

Net-X-Copy - Metadata Extraction

Net-X-Copy supports our standard range of proxy and broadcast file formats for extracting metadata to XMP XML.
