Signiant Series

The Signiant Series are collections focusing on relevant industry topics to aid and inform professionals across all strata of the media and entertainment community. 
 
In January 2021, Signiant introduced The Metadata Everywhere Series which details the role and importance of metadata in Signiant’s SaaS platform and various ways media companies create efficiencies from Signiant’s unique approach. In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the world went remote, Signiant launched The Pandemic Series, collaborating with members of the M&E community to explore the impact of the Coronaviruses and how the industry adapted to keep content flowing.
