15 September 2005 MPEG-7: standard metadata for multimedia content
Author Affiliations +
The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) metadata technology of describing media contents has emerged as a dominant mode of making media searchable both for human and machine consumptions. To realize this premise, many online Web applications are pushing this concept to its fullest potential. However, a good metadata model does require a robust standardization effort so that the metadata content and its structure can reach its maximum usage between various applications. An effective media content description technology should also use standard metadata structures especially when dealing with various multimedia contents. A new metadata technology called MPEG-7 content description has merged from the ISO MPEG standards body with the charter of defining standard metadata to describe audiovisual content. This paper will give an overview of MPEG-7 technology and what impact it can bring forth to the next generation of multimedia indexing and retrieval applications.
