Term: Metadata, process

Metadata that documents the details of the processes used to reformat (convert) or transcode content, called digital provenance (<digiprovmd>) in METS. For images, this subcategory can be documented in MIX and, for sound recordings, in AES-X98C, a draft standard from the Audio Engineering Society called Process History.
