First Public Working Draft: Remote Playback API

   14 July 2016

   The Second Screen Presentation Working Group has published a Working Draft of "Remote Playback API." This specification defines an API extending the HTMLMediaElement that enables controlling remote playback of media from a web page. It aims to make remote playback devices such as connected TVs, projectors or audio-only speakers, available to the Web and takes into account playback devices that are attached using wired (HDMI, DVI, or similar) and wireless technologies (Miracast, Chromecast, DLNA, AirPlay, or similar).


W3C Invites Implementations of Presentation API

   14 July 2016

   The Second Screen Presentation Working Group invites implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "Presentation API." This specification defines an API to enable web content to access external presentation-type displays and use them for presenting web content.


Time Ontology in OWL Draft Published

   12 July 2016

   The Spatial Data on the Web Working Group, a joint endeavor by W3C and OGC, has published an updated version of the "Time Ontology in OWL," "first published" by the Semantic Web Best Practices and Deployment Working Group in September 2006. The ontology has been in widespread use since that time despite two particular problems: the uncertain status of the work and its lack of support for calendar systems other than the Gregorian calendar. The SDW WG is addressing the first issue by taking the specification through the full standards process of both W3C and OGC. The second problem is fully resolved in the new draft, so that the Time Ontology is able to support any Temporal Reference System. Further requirements identified by the WG are also being addressed.


W3C Invites Implementations of Web Annotation Protocol

   12 July 2016

   The Web Annotation Working Group invites implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "Web Annotation Protocol." Annotations are typically used to convey information about a resource or associations between resources. Simple examples include a comment or tag on a single web page or image, or a blog post about a news article. The Web Annotation Protocol describes the transport mechanisms for creating and managing annotations in a method that is consistent with the Web Architecture and REST best practices.

       Web & Virtual Reality Workshop
       Mountain View, CA, USA
       Hosted by Samsung
       The Workshop will look at the intersection of Web and Virtual Reality technologies. It aims at enabling the sharing of experiences between practitioners of the field, discuss existing gaps in the Web platform that make some Virtual Reality use cases difficult or impossible in browsers today, and explore what future standards are needed to pave the way for the Web to be one of the major VR platforms.

       The workshop will cover a variety of related issues: how to manage a vocabulary in a collaborative environment, how to define an application profile for human and machine consumption, how to request data using a specific profile and, as a prime example of all this - experiences of using "DCAT" that might lead to its extension.
