The metadata wizard l.jpg
The Metadata Wizard

  • Metadata is useful for object reuse

  • Time consuming to fill in metadata

  • Background of Users

  • Need tools to help the user

    • A user profile is filled only once

    • Interactive questions may or may not be asked by the authoring tool

    • Deduction rules can be designed by professionals and customized to individual needs

    • The author makes a final confirmation of metadata

The video scorm project l.jpg
The Video SCORM Project

  • How about SCORM on TV?

  • How about interactivity?

  • How about standard?

  • The DVB Multimedia Home Platform (MHP)

    • Defined by the DVB consortium

    • Adopted in many countries

      • Italy, Germany, Finland, Singapore, S. Korea, Australia and others

      • Included in the US OpenCable & ACAP standards

  • Can we combine MHP with SCORM?

What is mhp l.jpg
What is MHP

  • A Platform Definition

  • A Set of Java APIs

  • A Set of HTML Document Type Definitions

  • An Extension to Existing Open Standards DVB, MPEG, JavaTV

  • MHP 1.0.x (1.0.0 – 1.0.3)

    • The original MHP specification plus updates

    • The most commonly deployed version of MHP

  • MHP 1.1.x

    • HTML Support, Stored Applications, Internet Client APIs, Smart Card APIs

The Video SCORM Authoring Tool

  • A video SCORM component is an SCO

  • Divides scenes into video stream files

  • Allow users to add metadata and sequence rules

  • However, sequence rules among scenes is our future work

Interactive digital tv l.jpg
Interactive Digital TV

  • Traditional Cable TV

  • Interactive TV (Video): interactivity between the users and broadcasting program, could be PC-based

  • Set-top Box and Digital TV

    • Limited computation power

    • Limited input device

  • Is MHP a solution?

Running an mhp based program l.jpg
Running an MHP-based Program

  • You must have:

    • Transport stream and object carousel generator

    • A playback system

    • Cable or satellite TV channel

  • Expensive? Yes

  • Alternative resource for research

    • Digital TV Simulator
