The meeting was convened by chairman D. Ackerman.
The agenda and report from the previous meeting, held in Vienna, Austria 2007-05-07, were accepted as written.
AES-X098B: Administrative and structural metadata for audio objects
Status: the draft had been secretariat-formatted for PWD. Some additional revisions were discussed here.
There was a discussion about the width of a tape, and how to define this without the use of the word "flange". The meeting agreed to use the wording, "the width of the tape perpendicular to the direction of travel", accompanied by a suitable diagram.
B. McCoy raised the question whether we needed a wire structureType. For example, do we need to add parameters for minimum and maximum diameters of recording wires? It was felt that this would be unnecessary because the tape structureType handles the three dimensions.
Ackerman proposed for annex B: TCF XML schema [and clause 5?]:
AES-X98B will be edited to reflect the discussion, after which it should be able to enter the formal part of the process.
AES-X098C: Administrative metadata for audio objects - Process history schema
No new progress to report. Two changes were proposed as a result of the Sound Directions grant project:
Nothing to report.
No new projects were proposed
1. An MPEG-A file format has been proposed for archival purpose. Comments from this group are invited.
2. A report or guideline on how to implement and use AES-X98B and AES-X98C was discussed. Volunteers are needed to work on it.
