This chapter discusses content description, search and delivery. In summary, MPEG-7 is about describing and finding contents and MPEG-21 deals with the delivery and consumption of these contents. As we see, none of these standards are about video compression, which is the main subject of this book. However, for the completeness of a book on the standard codecs we briefly describe these two new standards that incidentally are developed by the ISO/IEC MPEG standard bodies.

Inspec keywords: IEC standards; ISO standards; video coding; video codecs
