MPEG-7 multimedia description schemes (MDSs) are metadata structures for describing and annotating audio-visual (AV) content. The description schemes (DSs) provide a standardized way of describing in XML the important concepts related to AV content description and content management in order to facilitate searching, indexing, filtering, and access. The DSs are defined using the MPEG-7 description definition language, which is based on the XML Schema language, and are instantiated as documents or streams. The resulting descriptions can be expressed in a textual form (i.e., human readable XML for editing, searching, filtering) or compressed binary form (i.e., for storage or transmission). In this paper, we provide an overview of the MPEG-7 MDSs and describe their targeted functionality and use in multimedia applications
