PRISM is a packaging and metadata format, similar to NewsML, RSS, and XMLNews-Meta. Like RSS 1.0 and XMLNews-Meta (but not NewsML), PRISM is based on the World Wide Web Consortium's Resource Description Framework (RDF). PRISM is developed by an industry consortium of publishing software developers and publishers, including (among many others) Adobe, Quark, Condé Nast, and Time Inc.
While the PRISM web site reports an interoperability demonstration at Seybold Boston in February 2000, no PRISM software is currently known to be available.
