The Video Development Initiative (ViDe) MPEG-4 Working Group will be
releasing a combined Request for Information and Solicitation of Interest
to industry in early January 2001. The goal of this endeavor is to
ascertain the current state of MPEG-4 product development, and to invite
industry to partner with the ViDe MPEG-4 WG in MPEG-4 technology and
application development. We also envision cooperative pursuit of funding
to support that development.

Application development in the E-Learning, medicine, telemedicine and
virtual reality domains is of particular interest, with emphasis on the
potential of MPEG-4 to enhance data mining and content management, rights
and access management, embedded video in VR and VRML environments,
synchronization of multiple multimedia streams, and scalable multimedia

The MPEG-4 RFI/SoI will only be available online. The URL will be
distributed on January 8, 2000.

The Video Development Initiative is an international, multi-institutional
initiative to promote the deployment of digital video in higher education
by leveraging collective resources and expertise towards addressing
challenges to deployment.
