Dear all,

At the end of the MPEG meeting last week in Munich, MPEG has approved a 
call for proposals on Lightweight Application Scene Representation.

MPEG is calling for a binary format to represent scenes for use in a 
mobile environment, compatible with SVG Tiny. This format is code-named 
LASeR for Lightweight Application Scene Representation. MPEG is also 
calling for a Simple Aggregation Format, i.e. a simple multiplex for 
audio, video, images and LASeR scenes. The call defines various criteria 
for the choice of the best proposal: implementation in less than 100Kb 
on a mobile platform, ability to profile further and fit 30Kb, various 
requirements for features… The proposals are due on June 11th, to be 
evaluated by the Ad-hoc group on MPEG Scene Representation and the 
proponents during the following week in Paris.

An HTML version of this call is available at:
http://www.comelec.enst.fr/~dufourd/laser/laser_saf_call.htm
(the original is a Word document)

We have prepared a document explaining to non-MPEG-members the rationale 
of the Call for Proposal, what are the expected results of this call and 
inviting interested parties to participate in the discussions. It is 
available at:
http://www.comelec.enst.fr/~dufourd/laser/laser_call_comments.htm

Please note this second document is NOT an official MPEG document, but 
the production of individuals interested in the promotion of the LASeR call.
Best regards
JC
