Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Metadata for multimedia content can describe the detail of content in order to facilitate processing, for example identifying events along the time axis in temporal media, as well as carrying descriptive information for the overall resource. In both cases the metadata is essentially static and may be associated with, or embedded in, the multimedia content; it may also convey low level signalling data or higher level knowledge such as annotation by users. This paper discusses the case for working with semantically rich metadata as one or more distinct and continuous live flows, managed, delivered and processed separately from the content. It discusses a prototype system designed to explore the use of continuous metadata in videoconferencing and its extension to smart meeting spaces.
