We have adopted ISAN


DAC, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with International Standard Audiovisual Number (ISAN), a numbering system that identifies audiovisual works, and their versions, unambiguously. This includes both feature and short-lenght​ films, documentaries, television shows, etc.

Developed by the International Organization for Standardization ISO, ISAN is the only identifier for audiovisual works that is in ISO’s portfolio of communication media identifiers.

What are the main benefits of ISAN?

ISAN is used in the production and distribution systems, which simplifies information exchange between the interested parties in the communication media value chain. ISAN contributes to improve the advancement of rights and their distribution.

Implementation in the System for the Registry of Audiovisual Works

In this first stage we have already identified a number of DAC’s registered works with ISAN codes, they can be seen in the “Registered Works” (“Obras Registradas”) section beside each title.

The ISAN codes can also be viewed here.
