The agenda and report from the 118th convention meeting were accepted as written.
The original documents divisions are shown below but it was agreed this should be aiming at PWD by next October.
A discussion ensued on the requirements for the recording of the physical parameters of Optical media such as focal length to be recorded in the metadata about recordings or if, in reading the medium, this information can be deduced from the medium.
The next stages are to check the formatting and aligning it with metadata registries before issuing it as a PWD. This issue is also being discussed in SC-03-07.
The SMPTE metadata dictionary was referred to and the possibility of this document being linked to the SMPTE registry more formally was also discussed by being a part of class 13 of this large metadata set. This dictionary is publicly available from the SMPTE web site It was proposed that this document could be mapped into the SMPTE dictionary where elements already fit and any other items the AES wish to standardised could be put into a class 13 set as an AES entry. This proposal is put to the working group.
The meeting formally congratulated David Ackerman for his work on this document.
It was established that the AES is able to publish an XML schema both on line and as a part of the standards publication process.
The next meeting will be held in San Francisco at 1300 hrs on the 7th October 2006.
