CEDEO has payed major role in the development of MPEG-M
ISO/IEC 23006 – Multimedia Service Platform Technologies (MPEG-M) is a suite of International Standards that enable easy design and implementation of media-handling value chains. MPEG-M devices hooked to MPEG-M value chains interoperate because they are all based on the same set of technologies, especially MPEG technologies, embedded in a middleware called MPEG Extensible Middleware (MXM). Applications can access the technologies in the MXM through the API. Technologies and Protocols are wrapped in .
MPEG-M identifies and specifies Elementary Services and the corresponding set of protocols and APIs to support the current drive of service providers’ to deploy innovative multimedia services that enable any user in an MPEG-M value chain, e.g. creators and end users, to access services in an interoperable fashion.
Below a schematic representation of MPEG-M
The parts of the MPEG-M standards are
|Part 1||Architecture||Defines the MPEG-M architecture|
|Part 2||MPEG Extensible Middleware (MXM) API||Specifies the middleware API|
|Part 3||Reference Software and Conformance||Provides the Reference Software|
|Part 4||Elementary Services||Specifies the Elementary Services|
|Part 5||Service Aggregation||Specifies how to aggregate Services|
CEDEO personnel have played a major role in the development of MPEG-M, in particular Part 2 MXM API, Part 3 Reference Software and Part 4 Elementary Services
Currently the Reference Software includes the following Technology and Protocol Engines
|Engine type||Engine name|
|Semantic Overlay Network|
