| *One line summary* | We need to auto-extract metadata from audio, video and image files for quality assurance and cataloguing purposes. \\

| *Detailed description* | I) Quality Assurance: Material created by EAP projects must meet certain criteria. It is not always easy to discover, from a quick check of a submission, whether these have all been satisfied. It would be good to determine this at an early stage, so that corrections can be made. \\ \\
2) Cataloguing: Information which needs to be included in catalogues must be accessed manually (e.g. opening a wav file and skipping to the end to determine track duration), which is time consuming. Our cataloguing activities would be more efficient if metadata could be automatically extracted, in a useable format. \\ \\
For example: \\
\\
EAP132: can we generate a list of audio files and their properties, specifically their duration, bit rate? \\
EAP078: As above, for video \\
EAP336: images submitted at 240ppi, which is too low; it would be useful to be able to flag up images which don't meet our spec. \\
