(more generic) use cases for the media ontology


..          multimedia search

o    classic facetted browsing (cfr. /facet [1])

o    software agents matching user preferences with media annotations (cfr.

o    matching/merging UC of Veronique Malaise in her mail last friday

..          multimedia adaptation

o    adapting multimedia streams on shot or scene level, based on its media
annotations (e.g., remove violent scenes which were indicated in the media

o    Region Of Interest selection. Select only a specific region from the
frame/image, based on its media annotations

..          multimedia presentation

o    enhanced multimedia players (for example [3] and [4])

..          multimedia sharing

o    between different users

o    between different platforms (e.g., Flickr, Picasa, Webshots, ...)

..          tagging (cfr. MMSEM use case [5])

Metadata standard description


>From the MMSEM XG we could extract following strandards:

..          still images: VRA, Exif, DIG35, PhotoRDF

..          audio: ID3, MusicBrainz, MusicXML

..          audio/video: MPEG-7, AAF, MXF

..          presentations: SMIL, SVG

..          specific domains: NewsML, TVAnytime, P-Meta

..          other: Dublin Core, XMP, MPEG-21


We should "pick one metadata standard and pull out requirements, but not
tight to the XG document". There are not many other standards to be
elaborated on, right? It was the task of our XG to make an exhaustive
listing. Couldn't we start just using all these documents from the late
MMSEM XG (as Tobias already started)?


Some last thought 


..          we should not be too specific and also try to solve generic use



Sincere greetings and 'till next week,
