The MPEG-7 standard (ISO/IEC 15938, Multimedia Content Description Interface) defines multimedia descriptors, such as visual and audio descriptors, in XML Schema (XSD). Such semistructured descriptors are suitable for, among others, the numeric representation of audio waveforms and video signals in a machine-readable but not machine-interpretable form. This can be addressed by using Semantic Web standards, such as RDFS and OWL, instead of XSD, for modeling the MPEG-7 vocabulary (concepts, properties, relations), thereby taking the automated access, reuse, and redistribution of multimedia metadata to the next level.
