Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This document describes:
— what is meant by conformance of what is specified in ISO/IEC 23002-4
— the structure of the reference software related to what is specified in ISO/IEC 23002-4.
Currently the following profiles are included in ISO/IEC 23002-4 and in this document as reference software:
— ISO/IEC 14496-2 Simple Profile
— ISO/IEC 14496-10 Constrained Baseline Profile
— ISO/IEC 14496-10 Progressive High Profile
— ISO/IEC 14496-16 SC3DMC, and
— ISO/IEC 23008-2 Main Profile.
NOTE The reference software supports the decoding of bitstreams that conform to the Main Profile of ISO/IEC 23008-2, but does not support display-related features indicated in supplemental enhancement information (the support for which is a display capability that is outside the scope of ISO/IEC 23008-2).
