At the 2007 conference of the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) and the Video Development Initiative (ViDe)(March 26-29), the release of PBCore Version 1.1 was highlighted in a presentation by Paul E. Burrows reviewing the current activities of the PBCore Project. Attendees were updated on the advocacy, promotion, and adoption engagements of PBCore with industry groups, national and local program producers, PBS, NPR, Content Depot, and vendors of traffic and scheduling software.

Changes made from version 1.0 to 1.1 were explained, as were the importance of the PBCore XML Schema Definition document (XSD).

New training opportunities for PBCore, both online and on-demand, were announced. As well, a call-to-action was made to the attendees to participate in PBCore’s Community of Practice by joining the Listserv.
