West10 metadata supply

West10 metadata is available through datafeeds that can be sent daily or weekly at the times that suit you. West10 data is fully comprehensive, fully cross-referenced and includes track listings, images, sound clips and trailers. Follow favourite actors, script writers, directors, studios – in fact you can track information through virtually any aspect of the home entertainment industry. You can download our images in resolutions suitable for printing, showcase your catalogue through slideshows, prepare your own marketing campaign, build a purchase list… and once you have the information, the only limits are those you choose.

At West10 we work with our customers to find the best delivery solution that fits with their particular systems and methods of working, as well as recognising the need that businesses have to address their specific markets. We do not have a one-size-fits-all policy; we prefer to talk with our clients and find the best solution for them.

Metadata is delivered most usually via ftp but sometimes via an online interface service run by our partner company BDS. Find below more information about how we can deliver West10 metadata to you but don’t forget, your best course of action when you want to receive West10 metadata is to call our expert team on sales@west10entertainment.com  or 0772 500 1833.

For files and records

  • Metadata Updates – these are supplied in xml files and placed on our ftp servers. A username and password are needed to download the nightly feeds.
  • Images – where available, images of packshots and posters are saved in various sized jpegs. They are supplied with each record and the sizes vary from original (any size up to c. 35MB), large (400 pixels wide), medium (200 pixels wide) to thumbnail (100 pixels wide).
  • API – West10 records are also available using our API service.
  • BDSLive.

Timescales for standard and tailored solutions

West10 has standard feeds that can be set up within a few days. An initial full load will be created according to standard criteria such as formats, release dates, genres etc. Once this has been created a nightly update file will be set up that is placed on the West10 ftp server.

West10 can also create tailored feeds. These will take slightly longer to create and set up but the principle remains the same as our standard feeds – an initial full load, followed by nightly update feeds. Our flexible delivery means that West10 will work with your business rhythm. If you want customised metadata or you want your own website built from scratch to present our metadata, our team will be more than happy to help.
