Abstract

The XML metadata technology of describing Web objects has emerged as a dominant mode of making information available both for human and machine consumptions. To realize this promise, many online Web applications are pushing this concept to its full potential. However, a good metadata model does require a good standardization effort so that the metadata content and its structure can reach its maximum usage between various applications. An effective collaboration annotation tool should also use standard metadata structures in order to impact the enterprise collaboration environment. A new metadata technology called MPEG-7 content description has taken off from the ISO MPEG standards body with the charter of defining standard metadata to describe audiovisual content. This paper presents the design and implementation of a prototype tool, MCAT, which is able to annotate audiovisual objects using standardized content description metadata so that annotations can be shared between other applications and systems.
