Abstract

   This document describes a Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace for
   the Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG) for naming persistent
   resources as part of the MPEG standards.  Example resources include
   technical documents and specifications, eXtensible Markup Language
   (XML) Schemas, classification schemes, XML Document Type Definitions
   (DTDs), namespaces, style sheets, media assets, and other types of
   resources produced or managed by MPEG.

1.  Introduction

   MPEG is a working group of the International Organization for
   Standardization (ISO) and International Engineering Consortium (IEC)
   in charge of the development of standards for coded representation of
   digital audio and video.  MPEG has produced MPEG-1, the standard on
   which such products as Video CD and MP3 are based, MPEG-2, the
   standard on which such products as Digital Television set top boxes
   and DVD are based, MPEG-4, the standard for multimedia for the fixed
   and mobile web, and MPEG-7, "Multimedia Content Description
   Interface", the standard for description and search of audio and
   visual content. Work on MPEG-21, "Multimedia Framework" is currently
   underway.

   MPEG would like to assign unique, permanent, location-independent
   names based on URNs for some resources it produces or manages.

   This namespace specification is for a formal namespace.
