- Data Intake Programs
Information on music videos, including credits, is often in basic text format and can take time to enter into IMVDb's video form. IMVDb Pipeline is a simple way to bypass having to enter data into a form, by allowing you to simply email it to IMVDb in whatever format you have your information in.
Of course, you can always just email your info to email@example.com, but Pipeline is set up so that your information goes directly into our submission queue. It also allows multiple people to submit information in the name of any person, artist, or company Pipeline is set up for.
