The broadcasters of ARD, First German Television, have implemented a new system for file exchange: Media File Transfer (MFT) 2.0. Continuously growing transfer volume as well as integration of various media types for radio, television and online requires a common, universal platform for file exchange. Seamless integration with various systems as well as media exchange based on a common metadata schema lead to some specific requirements regarding system design.
