    The goal of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Media Annotation Working Group (MAWG) is to promote interoperability between multimedia metadata formats on the Web. Audio-visual data is omnipresent on today's Web, but different interaction interfaces and especially diverse metadata formats prevent unified search, access, and navigation. MAWG has addressed this issue by developing an interlingua on... View full abstract»

    This article studies the challenges and opportunities of million-scale near-duplicate video retrieval using three well-known and potentially scalable methods. It concludes that although these approaches can perform efficiently they suffer from a significant performance drop because the efficient features are neither discriminative nor robust enough for versatile cases.

    Many people enjoy the symphony, but those without prior training often find it difficult to relate to the music. The authors have developed a system that guides listeners through orchestral performances in real time by presenting time-relevant annotations in a manner similar to that of a personal museum guide. These annotations are authored in partnership with musical experts prior to a performanc... View full abstract»

    The MPEG Audio Subgroup has a rich history of accomplishments in creating music coding technology. At higher bit rates, MPEG technology can represent arbitrary sounds, including the human voice, with excellent quality. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 Audio coders use perceptually shaped quantization noise as the primary tool for achieving compression. The MPEG-4 High-Efficiency Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) stand...
