PEG-4 defines a multimedia system for interoperable communication of complex scenes containing audio, video, synthetic audio, and graphics material. In part 1 of this two-part article (in the previous issue) we provided a comprehensive overview of the technical elements. Here in part 2 we describe an application scenario based on digital satellite television broadcasting, discuss the standard's envisaged evolution, and compare it to other activities in forums addressing multimedia… 

Figures from this paper

Structuring interactive TV documents
TLDR
This work presents a model to structure and to organize documents describing Interactive TV programs and its related media objects, as well as the links between them that gives support to represent contextual information, and makes possible to use relevant metadata information in order to implement advanced services like object-based searches, in- movie navigation, and personalization.
Semantic multimedia remote display for mobile thin clients
TLDR
A semantic multimedia remote display that represents the graphical content as a real-time interactive multimedia scene graph and features novel components for scene-graph creation and management, as well as for user interactivity handling is developed.
Intelligent Semantic Access to Audiovisual Content
TLDR
The proposed system is targeting the intelligent extraction of semantic information from a/v and text related data taking into account the nature of useful queries that users may issue, and the context determined by user profiles.
Performance analysis of MPEG-4 decoder and encoder
TLDR
The paper first describes the MPEG-4 computational load and discusses related works, then the performance analysis is presented, showing that while the decoder program can be easily executed in real time, the encoder requires execution times in the order of seconds per frame which call for substantial optimisation to satisfy real-time constraints.
Robust Video Transmission With Distributed Source Coded Auxiliary Channel
TLDR
A novel solution to the problem of robust, low-latency video transmission over lossy channels by proposing an auxiliary codec system that sends additional information alongside an MPEG or H.26x compressed video stream to correct for errors in decoded frames and mitigate drift.
Multimedia Archives and Mediators
TLDR
During the last decade, the cost of storage and wide area communication services has decreased, while their capacity increased dramatically, which has made digital storage, annotation and access of multimedia information a mature and viable choice for content holding organizations and individuals.
Parallel implementations of the 3D fast wavelet transform on a Raspberry Pi 2 cluster
TLDR
This work presents and evaluates three parallelization strategies of the 3D fast wavelet transform (3D-FWT) on a cluster of Raspberry Pi 2 SDCs and considers the execution of the POSIX Threads and MPI versions on a very high-performance but power-hungry 4-core Intel Xeon CPU E5606, obtaining that the Raspberry Pi 1 SDC can do the task with much lower total energy consumption.
Unified Intelligent Access to Heterogeneous Audiovisual Content
TLDR
It seems that the extraction of semantic information from a/v and text related data is tractable taking into account the nature of useful queries that users may issue and the context determined by user profile.

TLDR
This work proposes an assessment of the adequacy of emerging multimedia standards, considering their potential relevance in medical applications, and describes the emerging multimedia Standards' features that could provide improvements.
Face Modeling and Animation Language for MPEG-4 XMT Framework
TLDR
FML provides a structured content description method for multimedia presentations based on face animation, an XML-based face modeling and animation language that allows parallel and sequential action description, decision-making and dynamic event-based scenarios, model configuration, and behavioral template definition.
