For the past two years the Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG), a working group of ISO/IEC, have been developing MPEG-7 [1], the "Multimedia Content Description Interface", a standard for describing multimedia content. The goal of this standard is to develop a rich set of standardized tools to enable both humans and machines to generate and understand audiovisual descriptions which can be used to enable fast efficient retrieval from digital archives (pull applications) as well as filtering of… 

Domain Knowledge Representation in Semantic MPEG‐7 Descriptions

The MPEG-7 standard, which is the dominant standard for audiovisual content description, provides interoperability at the syntactic level and, at the same time, allows for the semantic description of the audiovISual content.


MPQF is used to query semantic MPEG-7 RDF descriptions and a set of rules are proposed for converting MPQF query into SPARQL query without introducing new construct to MPZF.

Query Rewriting for Semantic Multimedia Data Retrieval

This chapter introduces XQuery language and discusses its ability to perform efficient retrieval in the querying of MPEG-7 descriptions, and describes the framework architecture used to alleviate both MPEG-6 and XQuery limitations.

Towards an Ontology for MPEG-7 Semantic Descriptions

An ontology is proposed that semantically represents the structure of MPEG-7 Semantic DS and primarily acts as a resource of such unification and can be used to develop tools that perform automatic multimedia reasoning from different existing semantic descriptions.

Are we Ready to Embrace the Semantic Web?

This work describes a systematic approach to the design of multimedia ontologies in which MPEG-7 is used to model only the structural and the low-level aspects of multimedia documents, and discusses various approaches that have been recently proposed to accomplish this task.

Coupling OWL with MPEG-7 and TV-Anytime for Domain-specific Multimedia Information Integration and Retrieval

An MPEG-7 compatible Retrieval API that has been developed for expressing powerful retrieval queries on multimedia content utilizing domain-specific knowledge and application specific metadata knowledge and greatly facilitates information integration, retrieval and interoperability in Web application environments.

Enquiring MPEG-7 based multimedia ontologies

A systematic survey of the state of the art MPEG-7 based multimedia ontologies is presented, and issues that hinder interoperability as well as possible directions towards their harmonisation are highlighted.

Interoperability Support between MPEG-7/21 and OWL in DS-MIRF

The DS-MIRF framework is described, a software engineering framework that facilitates the development of knowledge-based multimedia applications such as multimedia information retrieval, filtering, browsing, interaction, knowledge extraction, segmentation, and content description that supports interoperability of OWL with the MPEG-7/21.

MPEG-7-based description infrastructure for an audiovisual content analysis and retrieval system

This work proposes an approach to formalize the semantic constraints of an MPEG-7 profile using a formal vocabulary expressed in OWL, which allows automated processing of semantic constraints.

Qualifying Audiovisual Searching Results with Ontologies and Semantic Algorithms

This work presents how an OWL ontology of subjects, or themes, can improve the efficiency of searching engines through the adoption of semantic algorithms operating over selected contents metadata descriptors based on DCMI and MPEG-7 standards.



Overview of the MPEG-7 standard

This work presents a high-level overview of the MPEG-7 standard, discussing the scope, basic terminology, and potential applications, and compares the relationship with other standards to highlight its capabilities.

Towards second and third generation web-based multimedia

This work states the requirements for second generation processing of multimedia and describes how these have been incorporated in the prototype multimedia document transformation environment, emphCuypers, and discusses the models and techniques required for the creation of third generation multimedia content.

MetaNet: a metadata term thesaurus to enable semantic interoperability between metadata domains

MetaNet, a metadata term thesaurus which provides the additional semantic knowledge which is non-existent within declarative XML-encoded metadata descriptions and a hybrid mapping approach which combines the structural and syntactic mapping capabilities of XSLT with the semantic knowledge of MetaNet, to enable flexible and dynamic mapping among metadata standards.

Combining RDF and XML schemas to enhance interoperability between metadata application profiles

A hybrid collaborative approach is described which combines the semantic knowledge of RDF Schemas with the explicit structural, cardinality and datatyping constraints provided by XMLschemas in a complementary manner to enhance interoperability between application profiles.

XSL Transformations (XSLT) Version 1.0

This specification defines the syntax and semantics of XSLT, which is a language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents, which enhances the functionality and interoperability of the Web.

The ABC Ontology and Model

This paper describes the latest version of the ABC metadata model, a metadata model with more logically grounded time and entity semantics that is able to build a metadata repository of RDF descriptions and a search interface which is capable of more sophisticated queries than less-expressive, object-centric metadata models will allow.

An Event-Aware Model for Metadata Interoperability

The ABC model provides a foundation for understanding interoperability of individual metadata modules and for developing mechanisms to translate among them and of particular interest is an event, which facilitates understanding of the lifecycle of resources and the association of metadata descriptions with points in this lifecycle.
