Abstract / Description of output

Multimedia and the Semantic Web: in theory, it is a perfect match. The Semantic Web, on the one hand, provides a stack of languages and technologies for annotating Web resources, enabling machine processing of metadata describing semantics of web content. Multimedia applications, on the other hand, require metadata descriptions of their media items to facilitate search and retrieval, intelligent processing and effective presentation of multimedia information. This need for multimedia metadata was recognized by the media industry long ago. Semantic Web technologies, however, still play a very minor role within multimedia applications and most approaches employ non-RDF based techniques. This paper describes a number of current approaches to multimedia metadata and provides an inventory of the open issues to achieve a practical integration of multimedia metadata into the Semantic Web.
