MPEG standards are shaping the multimedia landscape since the beginning of the nineties. After the MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4 multimedia coding standards, the MPEG-7 content description standard and the MPEG-21 multimedia framework standard, MPEG is taking another step forward to impact the multimedia market. The MPEG-A standard targets the specification of Multimedia Application Formats, which are a class of 'super-formats' defined across MPEG standards or parts of standards; these super-formats target the provision of an additional level of interoperability on the application level, satisfying the growing need of users for more integrated solutions.
