Definition

Multimedia metadata profiles define the use of a multimedia metadata standard for a certain application domain. In many cases this includes the definition of a subset of the standard which is appropriate for the intended application. Due to this reduction, profiles are typically easier to understand and implement than the complete standard.

The concept of a profile is known in different kinds of standards (e.g., metadata, audiovisual coding) as a subset of a standard for a specific application area. The main goal of defining profiles is to increase the acceptance of a standard by removing parts that are irrelevant for a certain application area and to reduce the complexity of both understanding and implementing the standard. For metadata standards profiling means for example limiting the supported modalities, the level of detail of the annotations or the types of metadata that are supported.
