to previous well-known MPEG coding standards (such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and
MPEG-4), MPEG-7 goes beyond the domain of audiovisual coding and focuses on
efficient search and retrieval, filtering and semantic description of content.
The workshop will try to give a timely update on this ongoing standardization
process by explaining its overall concepts and discussing the technical
components of the proposed standard. This will be complemented by examples for
attractive potential applications and prototype demonstrations.
