Length
Schema
AES 4.4.2.1.2.10 (length)
Definition
Length is a parent element for subelements Value (a positive integer) and Unit (unit of measure, e.g., 'feet'). The measure of the object along its longest dimension.
Usage Note
Record the total length of the object itself, from end to end. For example, a film consisting of three 1000-foot reels would have a length of 3000 feet. Describe a cylinder in terms of its length from end to end. Otherwise, measure only that part of the object carrying the audio signal or image (the tape, wire, or strip of film), i.e., the length of the tape unwound from the cassette, the length of the wire unwound from the spool. When it is desirable to record an exact length of an object using two units of measure, repeat this element, for example, '25 feet, 8 frames.' For moving image or audio objects contained within an integral shell (cartridge, cassette) record the length of the shell in the shellDimensions element. Record dimensions of non-integral containers (jewel case, film can) in the outerContainer element.
