Metadata

The ability to add metadata to media files will greatly increase access to those materials. One method is Annodex.
The technology is based on proven file formats including XML by W3 for the continuous media markup language CMML, which provides annotations and hyperlinking, and Ogg (RFC 3533) by Xiph.org for the Annodex format, which together provide streamable, proxyable encapsulation of media and annotations.
Not sure how it ties in with MPEG 7, if at all. This comes from Australia which seems to be doing quite a bit of interesting work.
