7.3 WG 1

Dr. Lee explained the JPEG 2000 and new work item (JPSearch) activities. He reported that JPEG 2000 is getting adopted by various standardization groups and organizations. He highlighted that Digital Cinema Initiatives has selected JPEG 2000 for Digital Cinema.

7.4 WG 11
Dr. Leonardo Chiariglione, the WG 11 Convener, reported the activities of WG 11 based on the results of the following four meetings:

Dr. Chiariglione reported on the current MPEG-4, 7, and 21 activities in 10 areas (Media coding, Composition coding, Description coding, Systems support, IPMP, Digital Item, Transport and File Format, Multimedia architecture, Reference implementation, Application formats). He stressed key projects under development: Scalable video coding, Lossless coding, Video coding repository, 3DAV coding, and Symbolic music representation. He also reported the completions of Amendment of 14496-10 (AVC Fidelity Range Extension) and several important Amendments of MPEG-7.

7.5 Advisory Group on Management (AGM)
SC 29 reviewed the following contribution:

SC 29 noted that this additional document was not requested by JTC 1 in accordance with Resolution 25A taken at the 18th JTC 1 Plenary Meeting, 2003-11-17/21, Singapore, Singapore. SC 29 decided not to endorse SC 29 N 6014.

In response to the request by Dr. Kate Grant, UK, Dr. Istban Sebestyen made a verbal report on the current status of the form of Patent Statement and Licensing Declaration for a common and twin text with ITU-T (ref. SC 29 N 5815). He explained that the form was revised at the meeting of the TSB Director's Ad Hoc Group on IPR, 2004-07-09/10 (ref. SC 29 N 6211). SC 29 noted that the form has not been approved formally, however, ISO/IEC ITTF permits SCs to use the form for a common or twin text. In the course of the discussion, SC 29 decided to make a recommendation that ISO/IEC consider providing a single patent statement format, and to suggest that the latest form in SC 29 N 6211 could serve this purpose. SC 29 also instructed the SC 29 Secretariat to announce the availability of the form in SC 29 N 6211 in order to suggest SC 29 members using it internally.

7.6 National Body Contribution
SC 29 reviewed the following contributions from the NBs of Australia, Japan and UK.

Facilities Fee for SC 29 Meetings
The NB of UK expressed concern on the charging of Facilities Fee for those attending ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29 Plenary meeting. SC 29 reviewed SC 29 N 6058, Accounting Report of the 16th SC 29 Plenary meeting at Trondheim, Norway, and considered that the meeting was operated without problems.

WG 1 and WG 11 Document Archive
Following discussion of SC 29 N 6112, the Australian NB contribution for JPEG & MPEG Public Document Archive, SC 29 requested Mr. Paul Jessop, Mr. Richard Clark and Dr. Ian Burnett to:

ISO/IEC JTC 1 Patent Statement Database
The NB of UK expressed concern on the delays in the development of the JTC 1 Patent Statement Database. It should have been available on ISO/IEC ITTF Website by the end of January 2004.
The primary concern relating to this issue is that potential users can not see the patents lists relating to SC 29 standards and the delays are affecting successful deployment of SC 29's standards. SC 29 decided to request ISO/IEC ITTF to note the problems caused by the delays, and to complete the work as soon as possible.

Unified Patent Statement Format
The NB of Japan proposed that it would be beneficial to have a single patent statement format defined and implemented by ISO/IEC. SC 29 concured with the proposal. Related reports are in 7.5.

8 Reports and Review on Liaison

8.1 Request for Category C Liaison between WG 11 and DMP

SC 29 noted that the DMP activities are complementary to WG 11's work, especially within the field of MPEG-21. SC 29 approved the establishment of the category C liaison and appointed Mr. Marc Gauvin as a liaison representative from WG 11.

8.2 Request for Category C Liaison between WG 11 and DCCSDP&DCCSDC
