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
 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
   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

Interactive Digital TV
  Traditional Cable TV
  Interactive TV (Video): interactivity between
   the users and broadcasting program, could be
  Set-top Box and Digital TV
   – Limited computation power
   – Limited input device
  Is MHP a solution?
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
