Description

JHOVE provides functions to perform format-specific identification, validation, and characterization of digital objects.

Potential use cases for JHOVE include:

  1. Identification
    1. "I have an object; what format is it?"
  2. Validation
    1. "I have an object that purports to of format F; is it?"
    2. "I have an object of format F; does it meet profile P of F?"
    3. "I have an object of format F and external metadata about F in schema S; are they consistent?"
  3. Characterization
    1. "I have an object of format F; what are its salient properties (given in schema S)?"

Extracts properties from files and attempts to validate against format spec. Supports AIFF ASCII GIF HTML JPEG JPEG2000 PDF TIFF UTF-8 WAVE XML.
