SC 29 instructs its Secretariat to submit the NP to JTC 1 for NP ballot. If JTC 1 approves this NP, SC 29 allocates this work item to WG 11 for development.
Approval: Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Rep. of Korea, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, US (13)
Disapproval: Germany (for reasons) (1)
SC 29 approves the following progression of work items on condition that substantial support is received and Disposition of Comments reports satisfactorily dispose all comments accompanying negative votes, and also SC 29 further approves the subsequent progression to the next stage on condition that substantial support is received and Disposition of Comments reports satisfactorily dispose of all comments accompanying negative votes:
1) IS/AMD/COR publication stages
2) FDIS/FDAM/DCOR stages
3) FCD/FPDAM stages
4) CD/PDAM/PDTR stages
SC 29 approves the following modifications to its current Programme of Work, and instructs its Secretariat to submit them to JTC 1 for endorsement:
JTC 1.29.14.01 (15444-1): Core coding system
JTC 1.29.14.02 (15444-2): Extensions
JTC 1.29.14.03 (15444-3): Motion JPEG 2000
JTC 1.29.14.04 (15444-4): Conformance testing
JTC 1.29.14.05 (15444-5): Reference software
Rationale (ref. SC 29 N 3387):
NBs: Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA
JTC 1.29.15.01 (15938-1): Part 1: Systems
JTC 1.29.15.02 (15938-2): Part 2: Description Definition Language
JTC 1.29.15.03 (15938-3): Part 3: Visual
JTC 1.29.15.04 (15938-4): Part 4: Audio
JTC 1.29.15.05 (15938-5): Part 5: Multimedia Description Schemes
JTC 1.29.15.06 (15938-6): Part 6: Reference software
JTC 1.29.15.07 (15938-7): Part 7: Conformance testing
Rationale (ref. SC 29 N 3388):
1) The timing is not equal for all elements. Notably, the conformance specification and the software implementation will follow the other elements in time. Issuing the standard as a monolithic part would unnecessarily delay some of these other elements, which is detrimental to industry and hampers the adoption of the standard.
2) The standard will be easier to read for users, that can read the part or parts that concern them most, while not having to deal with the majority of the other parts.
3) Writing the standard is easier to manage for WG11 when there are subparts with their individual editors and contributors.
4) Updating (extending) the standard by means of amendments will be easier to manage if amendments can apply to one subpart rather than to the entire standard.
2) Minor Enhancements
Rationale (Ref. SC 29 N 3390)
Due to the changes in the user environment since the creation of ISO/IEC 13818-2, supplemental information about the production process, original content, and encoded data carried in MPEG-2 Video elementary streams is needed to improve the usefulness of the specification in a backward compatible way.
Rationale (Ref. SC 29 N 3396)
Rationale (Ref. SC 29 N 3397)
The MPEG committee has finalized its version 2 of the MPEG-4 specification. Together with Version 1, this specification provides to the industry a binary coded representation of a rich set of media (audio and video, natural and synthetic, 2D and 3D) as well as the coded representation of how these media are composed together in a dynamic scene description (2D or 3D).
Rationale (Ref. SC 29 N 3392)
There is a need to define 3D Mesh profiles. They were intended for inclusion in ISO/IEC 14496-2/Amd.1, but their definition was not precise enough to allow adoption in that first amendment.
3) Change of Titles
The industry requirements which supported this work have now changed and there is no need for such an extension to MHEG-5 at this time.
SC 29 approves the target dates for work items as stated in SC 29 N 4002.
SC 29 approves the following changes in project editor status.

SC 29 notes with concern that JTC 1's application to join the Protocol Support Organization (PSO) of ICANN has been referred back to JTC 1.

SC 29 enjoyed superb dinner at Humuhumunukunukuapura'a in the Grand Wailea Hotel.
Resolution 1: Reason for Disapproval
Germany disapproves the New Work Item Proposal regarding (MPEG-21) on the basis that the NP supporting documentation submitted only at the meeting could not sufficiently document the novelty and necessity of this new work item, as seems to be overlapping among others with by SC29 already approved Audio-Visual Framework, such as the PAS submitted by DAVIC. Also due to the late submission of the documents there was no time do discuss their merits within the German National Body. Germany is on the opinion that the current work exploring MPEG-21 - which explanatory work Germany supports - could have been continued without any delay under the same time schedule, but would have allowed MPEG to come back with more crisper ideas about the MPEG-21 project, and the voting on a new Work Item Proposal at this point was not necessary at all. If voting should have been necessary it could have been done after a more effective preparation of the supporting documentation by an SC 29 letter ballot. This would have better served WG11, SC 29, JTC 1 and the outside world.
