The MPEG Extensible Middleware (MXM) standard, formally known as ISO/IEC 23006, is currently at Final Committee Draft (FCD) stage. It comprises four parts, all are publicly available:
- Part 1: MXM Architecture and Technologies
- Part 2: MXM API
- Part 3: MXM conformance and reference software
- Part 4*: MXM protocols
* … this part was previously known as ISO/IEC 29116-2 (Part 2 of the Supplemental Media Technologies) and has been recently moved to MXM.
Furthermore, the MXM license can be found here which basically adopts the BSD license as posted previously. Other publicly available documents - such as requirements, context & objectives, etc. - can be found under the “General” section elsewhere.
According to SC29, the FCD ballot is open until 9th of January 2010 but in case you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know by commenting here or joining the Ad-hoc Group (AhG). The next MPEG meeting is approaching and we expect that any MXM-related inputs will find their way into so-called “Study of …” documents of the respective standards. That is, intermediate versions of the individual parts that may form the basis when drafting the Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) which will probably happen in January 2010.
