   Media Metadata

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi all, 

I need a schema for describing media metadata and I can't seem be able to wade my way through all the stuff out there. 

What I'm looking for is something like:
  <title xml:lang="en">Lorem Ipsum</title>
  <title xml:lang="fr">Dolor Sit Amet</title>
  <description xml:lang="en">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit,...</description>
  <description xml:lang="fr">Epsum factorial non deposit quid pro quo hic escorol. ...</description>
  <resource source="fullsizedimage_en.jpg" mimetype="image/jpg" xml:lang="en">
    <dimension width="200" height="300" unit="px" colordepth="24"/>
  <resource source="fullsizedimage_en.gif" mimetype="image/gif" xml:lang="en">
    <dimension width="200" height="300" unit="px" colordepth="24"/>
  <resource source="fullsizedimage_en.png" mimetype="image/png" xml:lang="en">
    <dimension width="200" height="300" unit="px" colordepth="24"/>
  <resouce source="thumbnailimage_en.gif" mimetype="image/jpg" xml:lang="en">
    <dimension width="32" height="32" unit="px"/>
  <resource source="fullsizedimage_fr.jpg" mimetype="image/jpg" xml:lang="fr">
    <dimension width="200" height="300" unit="px" colordepth="24"/>

So the idea is that I need to have a mulitmedia object that has a certain fundamental description (captions, descriptions and the like) and a series of resources that are differnet versions of this object. Theoretically, I want to be able to refer to arbitrary media types (audio, video, images, tec). 

What I want to be able to do is have my users, as they create content, they will refer to the media object and the transform will make decisions about which version to use depending on the user agent or the system language or what ever. 

Any ideas?
