Synchronized Multimedia Activity Statement

The Synchronized Multimedia Activity designed the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL, pronounced "smile") for choreographing multimedia presentations where audio, video, text and graphics are combined in real time. SMIL is a W3C Recommendation that enables authors to specify and control the precise time a sentence is spoken and make it coincide with the display of a given image.

The Synchronized Multimedia (SYMM) Working Group completed SMIL 1.0, SMIL 2.0 and SMIL 2.1 and is currently working on a new version (SMIL 3.0) which adds the following new features through new modules:

The Timed Text Working Group is now moved to The Video on The Web Activity.
