The agenda and report from the previous meeting were accepted as written.
Administrative metadata. "Audio Object" metadata set has been renamed from "Core Audio" to eliminate confusion with Apple Computers audio API. Ackerman described the use of this metadata set as well as the Audio Processing History metadata set. Ackerman described two applications, developed at Harvard University's audio preservation studios, that create each respective type of audio metadata. It is the intention of Harvard to release beta copies of these applications to anyone reviewing these administrative metadata standards. It is anticipated that the standards draft documents will be updated to reflect relevant changes discovered during the development of these two applications. The updated documents will be forwarded to the secretariat for formatting in August, 2004.
The next meeting is scheduled to be held at the AES 117th Convention in San Francisco, CA., US., 2004-10.
