Information technology -- Multimedia Middleware -- Part 1: Architecture
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.
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;
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):
