Dear all,

Maybe I have missed something, but isn't Video one of the most important use cases?

Whether it is merged into services or not here are some aspects off the top of my head:


-          VOD services. For example CableLabs VOD Metadata Content, this is primarily used by content providers (e.g. HBO, Discovery, Showtime) to send metadata to network operators about content which will available in the operator's VOD system.


-          Sharing Videos in a community. It could be sharing YouTube clips among mobile phone users or TV-viewers who want to recommend a program to a friend.  (It is actually supported so some extent in TV-Anytime).


-          EPGs (Electronic Program Guides) are supported by all of the above plus OMA BCAST; could be worth harmonizing?


-          Video repository management. Asset management for personal and professional video, like the Microsoft Interactive Media Manager, which uses ontologies to store relationships between assets but also attributes within those assets.


-          Semantic search and retrieval functions for Video (MPEG-7 and MPEG-21).


My point is that there are several standards involved in a Video user case.


Best regards
