The available content was reviewed during the meeting. It was good to see that many people and companies had taken - sometimes great - trouble to get content cleared and available to MPEG. The Requirements Group was happy with the effort of these companies.
It was concluded, however, that some material is still lacking and hence an additional Call for Content was drafted during the meeting. The call asks for Images, Video and Audio. The exact conditions for usage were fixed during the closing plenary (see Resolutions).
Seungyup Paek kindly volunteered to be responsible for the collection and distribution of the Corpus. The Requirements Group was very glad to accept his offer, as well as Telefónica’s offer to perform encoding.
Commercial CD’s will be chosen for some of the Audio content. Everyone can buy the CD’s.
Joint meeting with Video Group.
Two MPEG-7 contributions on descriptors were discussed in a joint meeting with Video. The meeting was well visited. The group looks forward towards receiving the descriptors as proposals in response to the CfP.
Liaisons were discussed with CEN and SMPTE, who are both doing work in the same area. The group was pleased to have not just liaison documents, but actual people present to explain what they are doing.
Audio involvement is still lacking in MPEG-7. Therefore, a special AHG was installed to organize Audio involvement.
