Example text

The specification for a Universal Set should state the items allowed to appear in the set, but not the order in which they should appear. Items may be mandatory or absent. The same item cannot appear more than once in a set. The components within Universal Sets (and indeed all groups) need not be limited to individual items. Groups may contain other groups or combinations of groups and items. Global Sets (Deprecated) Global Sets originally were designed to allow the grouping of several closely related items taken from the same node in the SMPTE Metadata Dictionary.

Dynamic Documents describe how to speed up the extension and revision process. Another obstacle to be removed is the time and effort required for publication of the registry contents. Until now, registry contents have been published as regularly revised SMPTE Recommended Practices. The Metadata Dictionary is RP210; the Labels Registry is RP224. New revisions can be produced as often as every three months. The first two or three versions of a registry add large numbers of items; after that, the pace slows.

Other binary syntaxes are possible, as are textual syntaxes—for instance, XML representation is discussed later in this chapter. Any item in the SMPTE Metadata Dictionary may be represented using KLV syntax, but SMPTE 336M does not list the items: that is the preserve of the dictionary. 9 KLV Group Coding Several kinds of group coding are defined: ◆ Universal Sets ◆ Global Sets (deprecated) ◆ Local Sets ◆ Variable Packs ◆ Fixed Packs These are described in the next sections. They simply are alternative container syntaxes for the group of items within them.
