Welcome to the official web site for the ISO standard MHEG.

What is MHEG?

WG12 is the ISO/IEC/JTC1SC 29 working group, commonly known as MHEG, which provides standards for the coded representation of multimedia hypermedia information objects that are interchanged among applications and services using a variety of media. The objects define the structure of a multimedia hypermedia presentation.

MHEG used to meet three times a year at various locations (working electronically between meetings) and welcomes contributions from interested parties; contributions should be sent to the Convenor of SC 29/WG12, Dr Wataru Kameyama (As of the Maui meeting of WG 12 December, 1999, Dr. Thomas Casey has resigned as the Convenor of WG 12.).
