  1. 1.<br /><br /><br />Accelerating Media Business Developments<br />MPEG-M: MPEG Extensible Middleware<br />Christian Timmerer<br />Klagenfurt University (UNI-KLU)  Faculty of Technical Sciences (TEWI)<br />Department of Information Technology (ITEC)  Multimedia Communication (MMC)<br />  <br />Acknowledgments<br />L.

  2. 2. What if …<br />… one does not need to have in-depth knowledge of specific MPEG technologies / standards?<br />… one is able to start with application/business development as soon as some (reference) software becomes available?<br />… one is able to exchange applications’ underlying (reference) software with optimized one at no cost?<br />2009/10/31<br />Christian Timmerer, Klagenfurt University, Austria<br />2<br />

Introduction – Overview<br />A set of APIs to access possibly all MPEG technologies<br />Simple methods to call complex functionalities inside MXM engines<br />“Thin” applications because the complexity is in the MXM engines<br />Replacement of MXM engines with better performing ones at no cost<br />Creation of a global market of MXM Engines, MXM Applications and MXM Devices<br />2009/10/31<br />Christian Timmerer, Klagenfurt University, Austria<br />5<br />
  6. 6. Introduction – Overview (cont’d)<br />The MXM standard – ISO/IEC 23006 – is subdivided in four parts:<br />Part 1 - MXM Architecture and Technologies specifies the MXM architecture and references the technologies that are part of an MXM implementation;<br />Part 2 - MXM Application Programming Interfaces (APIs): specifies the MXM APIs;<br />Part 3 - MXM Conformance and Reference Software: specifies conformance tests and the software implementation of the standard<br />Part 4 – MXM Protocols: specifies a set of protocols enabling distributed applications to exchange information related to content items and parts thereof, including rights and protection information<br />2009/10/31<br />Christian Timmerer, Klagenfurt University, Austria<br />6<br />

  12. 12.

  13. 13. The MXM Approach<br />1. Creating wrapping libraries, called engines<br />2. Opening the engines at ESSENTIAL points only<br />3. Documenting the IN/OUT points in another …<br /> MPEG standard: 23006-2 MXM API<br />- only 37 pages , <br />- around 500 methods<br />2009/10/31<br />13<br />Christian Timmerer, Klagenfurt University, Austria<br />

  15. 15. MXM APIs of Each Engine have been Divided into…<br />Creation e.g. <br />Encode a raw audio track<br />Create an MPEG-7 metadata description <br />Access e.g. <br />Get data from a Digital Item<br />Decode a video <br />Editing e.g. <br />Add an elementary stream to a multiplexed content<br />Engine-specific e.g. <br />RELEngine: authorise(license, query)<br />LicenseProtocolEngine: requestLicense(licenseID, serviceURL) <br />15<br />2009/10/31<br />Christian Timmerer, Klagenfurt University, Austria<br />

  17. 17. Join the MXM Development Team!<br />Why you should join<br />Plenty of interesting work still has to be done<br />Enough space for student projects, master thesis, PhD thesis, etc.<br />You can choose between Java, C++ or start a new implementation in another language!<br />It gives you visibility on a broad set of MPEG technologies<br />Web site, blog, reflector, and soon more utilities<br />Friendly and collaborative environment <br />17<br />2009/10/31<br />Christian Timmerer, Klagenfurt University, Austria<br />
