This amendment specifies two enhancements of AVC:

1) It specifies a new Level 5.2 for AVC profiles that is capable of supporting high resolution video at high frame rates, such as 4096x2160 @ 60p, and

2) It specifies an additional profile of AVC called the Progressive High Profile, that is similar to the previously-existing High Profile but does not support field picture coding and macroblock-adaptive frame/field coding (i.e., features informally known as "interlace coding tools").

1.2       MPEG Frame-Compatible Enhancement for AVC

Std

Pt

Amd

Req

Short description

This exploration effort considers the potential for scalable enhancement of the resolution of "frame compatible" stereo video coding. The current "frame compatible" stereo video coding technology involves packing together the right and left views of a stereo 3D video scene representation using only half the resolution that would be used for a corresponding 2D video representation. This effort considers the standardization of a scalable enhancement to enable next-generation services using coded enhancement data to increase the quality of the delivered video by enabling new devices to decode a full-resolution representation of the stereo 3D video.

Short description

The advances in developing the Unicode Standard and the addition of new characters that represent most of the world's languages and writing systems resulted in a significant increase of the Unicode character repertoire to more than 100,000 characters. However, due to the finite size of many bitfields, the existing ISO/IEC 14496-22:2009 specification only provides the capabilities for a single font to support up to 64K glyphs. The Composite Font Standard is intended to resolve the existing limitation by providing a solution that would allow linking of existing OFF fonts (and, possibly, fonts in other formats) into a single Composite Font to be used as a virtual font by any compliant implementation.

This amendment contains a precise specification of the RVC computation model, RVC-CAL I/O extended support, definition of typing rules for large number arithmetic and (non-normative) definition of Functional Unit dataflow classes, classification rules and methods.

1.6       High-Efficiency Video Coding

Std

Amd

Req

Short description

       

The overall amount of video data rate that is to be transferred over networks will continue to grow at a very fast pace, driven by the increased number of services and users and the increasing resolution of video from SD to HD and beyond.

High-efficiency video coding (HEVC) is the next generation of video compression technology that will have clearly higher compression capability than the existing AVC standard in its dominant configuration, the High Profile. The HEVC standard will support all commonly used progressive scan picture formats, ranging at least from QVGA (320x240) to Ultra HD resolutions such as 8Kx4K, as well as picture formats of arbitrary size.

Specifies syntax and semantics of the tools required to provide interoperability in controlling devices in real as well as virtual world. The scope of this Part of the standard covers the interfaces between the adaptation engine and the capability descriptions of actuators (sensory devices)/sensors (SDC/SC) in the real world and the user’s sensory preference information (USEP), which characterizes devices and users, so that appropriate information to control individual devices (actuators and sensors) for individual users can be generated. In other words, user’s sensory effect preferences, sensory device capabilities, and sensor capabilities are within the scope of this Part of the standard. These tools are defined in this Part of the standard using XML Schema. The overall structure of the tools are organized and defined by specifying Control Information Description Language (CIDL). The CIDL enables the instantiation of three types of descriptions. The actual descriptions (sensory device capabilities, sensor capabilities, and user’s sensory effect preferences) are not part of CIDL, but defined as the Device Capability Description Vocabulary (DCDV), Sensor Capability Description Vocabulary (SCDV), and User’s Sensory Effect Preference Vocabulary (SEPV), respectively.

To be specific, basic data types which are used as basic building blocks in more than one tools of ISO/IEC 23005, color-related basic types which are used in light and color related tools to help specifying color related characteristics of the devices or commands, and time stamp types which can be used in device commands and sensed informations to specify timing related information. Also several classification schemes which are used in more than one parts of ISO/IEC 23005 are defined in the annex of this part. Other tools to be developed shall be included in this part of ISO/IEC 23005, if those tools are to be commonly used with more than one tool which are defined in different parts of ISO/IEC 23005. Please note that most of the tools defined  in this part are not intended to be used alone, but to be used as a part or as a supporting tool of other tools defined in other part of ISO/IEC 23005.

1.12   3D Video Coding

Std

Pt

Amd

Req

Short description

       

3D video (3DV) supports new types of audio-visual systems that allow users to view videos of the real 3D space from different user viewpoints.  In an advanced application of 3DV, denoted as Free-viewpoinT Video (FTV), a user can set the viewpoint to an almost arbitrary location and direction, which can be static, change abruptly, or vary continuously, within the limits that are given by the available camera setup. Similarly, the audio listening point is changed accordingly. 

The first phase of 3DV development is expected to support advanced 3D displays, where M dense views must be generated from a sparse set of K transmitted views (typically K£3) with associated depth data. The allowable range of view synthesis will be relatively narrow (20 degrees view angle from leftmost to rightmost view).

1.13   Reconfigurable Graphics Coding

Reconfigurable Graphics Coding (RGC) is borrowing the essential idea of the RVC framework that is a dynamic dataflow mechanism of constructing new video codecs by a collection of video coding tools from video tool libraries. The difference is here that RGC deals with graphics, therefore its goal is to set up the collection of graphics tool library.

This is an exploration of the role that MPEG audio standardization can play in two emerging trends in multi-media. The first is "3-D Audio" in which there may be many loudspeakers used in the audio presentation. Issues being explored are how to automatically adapt audio program material to the target number of loudspeakers in a given consumer's listening venue.  The second is "Audio for new video presentation" in which the video will very high resolution (as in MPEG HEVC). This would permit a closer viewing distance such that the user is within the audio near field. Issues being explored are how the audio presentation (i.e. number and position of loudspeakers) can enhance sound source localization and the sense of immersiveness. Both large "home theatre" and smaller portable audio-visual presenations are being considered.

Req

Short description

The proposed amendment 7 describes the signaling of frame compatible coding in MPEG-2 video component and service compatible stereoscopic video services that use simulcast of MPEG-2 and AVC video components. For frame compatible signaling of MPEG-2 video component, an optional stream_type and descriptor is proposed. This enables compatible delivery of such services to both 'upgradable' and non-upgradable (deployed) receivers. This signaling scheme for service compatible mode supports delivery of service compatible 3D stereoscopic video where the base view video stream (which is usually 2D compatible) and the additional view video stream are coded independently using either MPEG-2 or AVC video or any combination thereof. The signaling includes new stream_type values and descriptors that assist in composition and rendering of 3D video.

Currently multimedia services based on ISO/IEC-14496-1 and ISO/IEC 14496-11 technologies cannot be played by ISO/IEC-14496-1 unaware players, in a backward compatible manner, even if the service uses video or audio components formats playable. Additionally, the carriage of ISO/IEC-14496-1 services over ISO/IEC 13818-1 uses, in some cases, inefficient signalling. This amendment to ISO/IEC 13818- provides mechanisms to use media components in backward compatible manner and improves the delivery efficiency of ISO/IEC-14496-1 multimedia services.

This introduces a file track feature that enables using ISO Base Media Files as flexible playlists. Among other things, file tracks enable DASH (ISO/IEC 23001-6) clients record received segments into file(s) in a straightforward manner. 

When compared to using playlist formats or presentation languages (e.g. SMIL), the file track feature may provide the following advantages:

-           It uses the same parser for both the containing file and the contained files. Hence, when the playback switches from one contained file to another, it is less likely that the playback suffers from interrupts or glitches.

-           It provides powerful mapping of contained files onto the presentation timeline of the containing file by using edit lists.

In order to overcome current limitations of available standards in the area of media streaming, the development of a media aware client is envisioned in line with the MPEG philosophy of concentrating the work on the media client. Possible topics of work are:

-       Transport- and file format friendly stream format

-       Cross layer optimization between video and transport layer

-       Error resilience for MPEG streams,

-       Conversion between transport mechanisms

-       Content adaptation to different networks.

ISO/IEC 23006 or MPEG-M is a suite of standards on Multimedia Service Platform Technologies developed for the purpose of enabling the easy design and implementation of media-handling value chains whose devices interoperate because they are all based on the same set of technologies, especially technologies standardised by MPEG, accessible from the middleware and multimedia services.

This part of ISO/IEC 23006 specifies the architecture of the Service Oriented Architecture character that is made accessible through the set of MPEG-M middleware APIs (MPEG-M part 2), elementary services (MPEG-M part 4) and service aggregation (MPEG-M part 5).

This part of MXM specifies a set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) so that MXM Applications executing on an MXM Device can access the standard multimedia technologies contained in its Middleware as MXM Engines, as specified by part 1 of MXM.

The APIs belong to two classes

       The MXM Orchestrator API, i.e. the API of the special MXM Engine that is capable of creating chains of MXM engines to execute a high-level application call such as Play, as opposed to the typically low-level MXM Engine API calls

       The MXM Engine APIs, i.e. the collection of the individual MXM Engine APIs providing access to a single MPEG technology (e.g. video coding) or to a group of MPEG technologies where this is convenient

       The MXM Service APIs, i.e. the collection of the individual MXM Engine APIs (e.g.

The second edition conserves the architecture and design philosophy of the first edition, but stressing the Service Oriented Architecture character. Also, this second edition has been specified to address the demand of service specification for advanced IPTV terminals.

The Widgets Extensions amendment of 23007-1 contains a small set of extensions coming from early implementation experience. The protocol for widget migration has been defined to ensure the interoperability of widget managers sharing the same service protocol. The possibility to migrate a widget to multiple other widget managers has been added. A simple capabilities exchange mechanism has been added for a widget manager to be able to migrate the appropriate version of a widget to another widget manager.

This aims to provide a compact representation of the dynamic volume preset in ISO/IEC 23000-12 Interactive music application format. The volume changes can be specified by using time intervals so that dynamic volume changes can be approximated by combinations of linear modeling. Based on this, new representation method provides less required storage space and file parsing complexity of IM AF players while the errors in the volume levels due to time interval approximation which does not affect the audio quality significantly.
