R04.03 WG15 Internet Protocol Delivered Captions The main activity involves studying the methods for signaling and transport of the SMPTE‐TT essence in an MP4 file wrapper. The Ultraviolet Common File Format, which is well established and appropriate for IP‐delivered video programming, should be considered since it defines a derivation of SMPTE‐TT. In addition, the VPAAC SMPTE‐TT recommendation should be considered, while maintaining liaison with SMPTE and other organizations as needed, which would be used to provide guidance for the CE and related industries including which parts of SMPTE‐TT would be used and in what way. The VPAAC recommendation was for the SMPTE RP 2052‐10‐2010, limited by current captioning regulatory requirements per CEA 608/708. The Work should include timing and buffer models, and performance specifications. The Work should include the development of test materials, including test files and a reference decoder. The Work is expected to result in one or more CEA reports, standards or recommended practices. Follow‐on work could involve investigation of approaches for other (non‐MP4) delivery formats. Ideally, this would consider and, as appropriate, harmonize with or build on, concepts, constructs, or signaling approaches identified for the MP4 delivery environment.
