Subject:  VOTE by 2021-05-28/29: Proposed Charter for the Media & 
Entertainment Interest Group; Current Charter Extended; Change of Chairs

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

This is a Call for Review of a proposed recharter for the Media & 
Entertainment Interest Group:

The deadline for responses is 03:59 UTC on 29 May 2021 (23:59, Eastern 
time on 28 May) [0].

The group's current charter [1] is extended until 31 May to accommodate 
the charter review period.

The mission of the Media and Entertainment Interest Group is to provide 
a forum for media-related technical discussions to track progress of 
media features on the Web within W3C groups and use of Web technologies 
by external organizations, and to identify use cases and requirements 
that existing and/or new specifications need to meet to achieve a 
tighter support of media services on the Web.

The proposed scope for the Interest Group remains unchanged, covering 
Web technologies used in the end-to-end pipeline — including capture, 
production, distribution and consumption — of continuous experiences 
(videos, sound recordings, associated technologies such as timed text, 
and input/output mechanisms used to engage users).

A diff from the current charter is available [2].

Additionally, W3C is pleased to appoint Christopher Lorenzo (Comcast) as 
new co-Chair of the Media & Entertainment Interest Group. Pierre-Anthony 
Lemieux (MovieLabs) is stepping down to focus on chairing the Color on 
the Web Community Group and his continued participation in the Timed 
Text Working Group.

W3C thanks Pierre for his work on the Interest Group, and welcomes 
Christopher in this new role. Christopher joins continuing co-Chairs 
Tatsuya Igarashi (Sony) and Chris Needham (BBC).

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
Kazuyuki Ashimura <>, Team Contact for the Media & 
Entertainment Interest Group.

For more information about the group and participation, see its home 
page [3].

This charter review, extension, and chair announcement follow sections 
5.1, 5.2.3 and 5.2.5 of the W3C Process Document [4][5][6].

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Kazuyuki Ashimura, Media & Entertainment IG Team Contact;
Xueyuan Jia, Marketing & Communications
