Content Package

Definition - What does Content Package mean?

A content package is a means for defining content that is readable by a variety of software. It usually comprises metadata that defines the content, and the actual content itself.

The term content package can be used in general to describe any collection of data that is collected together with a metadata description of the contents and can be distributed by any entity wishing to standardize the data that they issue for multiplatform compatibility.
