ISO/IEC 23004-1:2007 specifies the architecture of the MPEG Multimedia Middleware technology. Multimedia Middleware (M3W) allows application software to execute multimedia functions with a minimum knowledge of the inner workings of the multimedia middleware as well as to support a structured way of updating, upgrading and/or extending the multimedia middleware. The architecture consists of the following.

  • M3W API:
    • multimedia API (specified in detail in ISO/IEC 23004-2);
    • interfaces for audio broadcast decoding, processing and rendering;
    • interfaces for video broadcast decoding, processing and rendering;
    • IPMP interfaces;
    • governance interfaces.
  • Support API (specified in detail in ISO/IEC 23004-3 to ISO/IEC 23004-7):
    • interfaces for instantiation of services (Runtime Environment and Service Manager);
    • interfaces for interaction with remote services (REMI-P and REMI-R, REMI stands for Remote Method Invocator);
    • interfaces for Resource Management;
    • interfaces for Component Download;
    • interfaces for Fault Management;
    • interfaces for Integrity Management.
  • Realization technology (specified in detail in ISO/IEC 23004-3):
    • Unit of Trading;
    • Unit of Loading;
    • Unit of Instantiation;
    • standard interfaces:
      • navigation between interfaces,
      • binding,
      • access to public attributes.
