Formally known as the Multimedia Content Description Interface, MPEG-7, is perched to ring in a new era of audio and visual processing. Currently MPEG-7 is still in the development stages. The relationship between MPEG-4 and this standard will be ongoing use of media objects defined in the MPEG-4 standard.

The requirements needed consist of a set of description schemas, a language to specify description schemas and the coding schema. The relevant push and pull applications that the MPEG-7 standard will try to enable will be summarized to concluded the talk.
