Resolution 2: Modifications to the Programme of Work

SC 29 approves the following modifications to its current Programme of Work, and instructs its Secretariat to submit them, including the level of SC 29 NB support and rationale, to JTC 1 for endorsement:

1) Minor Enhancements

1.1) JTC 1.29.05.02.01.06 (13818-1/AMD 6)

Title:
AMENDMENT 6: 4:2:2 Profile@High level splice parameters and buffer model for ISO/IEC 13818-7 (AAC)

Rationale:
1) 4:2:2 Profile @ HL
This amendment provides splice parameters corresponding to the 4:2:2 Profile @ High Level. This would allow the MPEG-2 standard to be used for applications like creation of high quality high definition video in studios, distribution of high quality high definition video etc.
2) Buffer Model Extensions for ISO/IEC 13818-7 (AAC)
ISO/IEC 13818-7 (AAC) did not exist when the buffer model was developed in ISO/IEC 13818-1. Therefore, that buffer model did not take into account the needs of ISO/IEC 13818-7. This amendment also specifies a new buffer model and leak rate by taking into account the additional needs of ISO/IEC 13818-7.

National Body Supports:
Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, US

1.2) JTC 1.29.05.02.02.05 (13818-2/AMD 5)

Title:
AMENDMENT 5: 4:2:2 Profile@High Level

Rationale:
This amendment extends the definition of the 4:2:2 Profile to High Level. This would allow the MPEG-2 standard to be used for applications like creation of high quality high definition video in studios, distribution of high quality high definition video etc.

National Body Supports
Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, US

1.3) JTC 1.29.05.02.04.02 (13818-4/AMD 2)

Title:
AMENDMENT 2: System target decoder model

Rationale:

National Body Supports
Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, US

Specifically, SC 29 affirms the ISO policy of only considering technology that is free of "IP rights" or which is available on a royalty and license fee free basis or which is available under reasonable terms and conditions on a non-discriminatory basis.

In particular, SC 29 suggests to its WGs to implement, whenever possible, license-free "patent policy" as practiced by SC 29/WG 1.

Additionally, SC 29 encourages disclosure of the terms under which these "IP rights" will be made available for conforming implementations of ISO/IEC standards after final publication.

Further, SC 29 requires software and technology be available to all members of SC 29/WGs on a non-revocable, royalty and license fee free basis only for the purpose of standards development and until publication of the standard. This policy requires disclosure by any members of a WG having "IP rights" on each technology submitted for inclusion in the standard without regard to who makes the recommendations for inclusion. SC 29 requires this disclosure and agreement with this policy for future technology submissions prior to or at the time that the technology is recommended for inclusion in a standard.
