    Moving Picture Expert Group (MPEG), one of the technical working group of international standards organization/international electrotechnical commission (ISO/IEC) is developing international standards for multimedia description in theory and application. MPEG-7 standard includes computer scientists and electrical engineers in academia and industry. This standards is a highly complex tool in many ways that is ahead of its time in its ability to handle both rich structural and semantic descriptions in a modular, flexible fashion. The standard provides a number of schema tools to assist in forming, packaging, and annotating these description. Researchers are selecting specific parts of MPEG-7 standard for their utility and implementing them either on a stand-alone basis or in concert with other standards.
