The OpenEPG standard defines a field structure and access method for obtaining electronic program guide (EPG) data, also known as metadata, for describing audio-video content and its availability using IP-related protocols. The OpenEPG standard facilitates access by home entertainment devices to scheduled event data for terrestrial, cable and satellite programming; to video on demand (VOD) services and to content stored locally on a home networked device. OpenEPG allows for aggregation of metadata provided by multiple sources such as various metadata service providers (MSPs) including small and local MSPs (such as churches, schools, etc.) and personal metadata for content provided by a user.
