Features table from Ruben


<joakim> Lets spend time on document during f2f

<frank> +1

<Daniel> it's very useful. yes we will be able to spend much time for this discussion in Ghent

<joakim> Ruben commented the feature table

<pchampin> I think a line may be missing from the table

<joakim> The table can serve as a template for everyone to edit

<joakim> One line might be missing: the issue of annotating fragments

<joakim> Or is it realted to the Media fragments group?

<veronique> are there description properties that are valid only for fragments of media documents?

<Ruben> like SegmentDecomposition in MPEG-7

<joakim> Ruben thinks media fragments should be considered

<joakim> Identify fragments such as charcaters or an emotion in a scene

<Ruben> Well I did not say that, I'm just trying to understand Pierre-A...

<joakim> exchange metdata independent of the media

<joakim> Pierre-Antoine Champin will summerize his thoughts

Re-confirmation request from Daniel about the scope of our group


"The main focus of our group is video. We are also looking into other

multimedia vocabularies, including ID3. However, I cannot tell (yet) to

what extend these will be taken into account."

<Daniel> my thought is. video (and partially audio) is in-scope, music/image/text is out-of scope, any thoughts ?

<Daniel> sorry, I can't speak out using mic yet...pls be patient

<veronique> why would image and music be out of scope (particularly if audio is in scope)..

<frank> what daniel wants to say is: we focus on temporal media only?

<veronique> I agree with video as a priority

<joakim> Felix: Video is in the center, but we might take other modalities into account

<frank> audio should really be in there

<veronique> but audio and images standards are quite close on some aspects

<veronique> that's why I do not see images as "out of scope"

<Daniel> just trying to make a clear definition of *video*

joakim: think we should also images into account, since there are many image files available. Would be not good to disregard them

<Daniel> I agree with Joakim's concern, yeah seems to be also complex. I'd propose an email discussion on the list later. I will post

<Daniel> OK, after email discussion, then I will wrap up that and go to f2f

Layer structure discussion


<joakim> P-A: Inorder to decide if we need strucutre or flat model we should construct a conceptual model first

<joakim> We should decide if we need a syntax

<joakim> in that case keep the syntax simple

<joakim> We need a mixture of structured and flat model

<joakim> A conceptual model could help avoiding repeating propoerties

<joakim> we deicde based on the use case document

<joakim> http://www.w3.org/2008/WebVideo/Annotations/wiki/MXM

<Ruben> Victor is not here

<Daniel> yeah, victor is not here, so let's move that on the mailing list or next call

<joakim> http://www.w3.org/2008/WebVideo/Annotations/wiki/TXFeed

<joakim> http://www.w3.org/2008/WebVideo/Annotations/wiki/XMP

<Daniel> XMP review will be part of f2f agenda.

<joakim> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-media-annotation/2008Nov/0097.html

<joakim> Flickr machine tags are interesting because they are flat

<joakim> Not using a name space but a prefix

<joakim> Should we investigate flickr machines tags closer?

<joakim> http://dev.w3.org/2008/video/mediaann/mediaont-req/mediaont-req.html

<veronique> the approach sounds interesting, even if images are not the primary focus of the WG

<Daniel> are somebody take this as a new ACTION ITEM ?

<pchampin> i can do that

<Daniel> good,

<joakim> http://dev.w3.org/2008/video/mediaann/mediaont-api-1.0/mediaont-api-1.0.html

<Daniel> ok, it's just boilerplate issue

<Daniel> last question before closing

<Daniel> are you all ok this call time ?

<veronique> well, it is quite late here...

<wonsuk> It's very early to me.

<Daniel> I saw may regrets since it's too late...what do you think ? shall we change ?

<Daniel> OK, Joakim and myself will make some alternative for the call time

<veronique> but there has been a vote about this schedule, no?

<veronique> ok

<Daniel> we can vote our schedule whenever we want...:-)

<Daniel> thanks, and see you next call

<Ruben> Bye
