Green metadata for energy utilization reaches FDIS ballot milestone

 Draft standard ISO/IEC 23001-11, Green Metadata has reached the FDIS ballot milestone at the 110th MPEG meeting held in October. This standard specifies the format of metadata that can be used to reduce energy consumption from the encoding, decoding, and presentation of media content, while simultaneously controlling or avoiding degradation in the Quality of Experience (QoE).

Moreover, the metadata specified in this standard can facilitate a trade-off between energy consumption and QoE. MPEG is also working on amendments to the ubiquitous MPEG-2 TS ISO/IEC 13818-1 and ISOBMFF ISO/IEC 14496-12 so that green metadata can be delivered by these formats.
