The proliferation of digital video, photos, and other forms of rich media is a great indicator of the growing interest in online digital content. With this explosion in content, though, comes the challenge of finding relevant content. Unfortunately, today's solutions aren't adequate as digital-content search isn't uniform and is highly fragmented across innumerable sites constrained to silos of content. The situation clearly calls for establishing standard mechanisms for interoperable digital-content search. This article reviews the current state of digital-content search and examines recent relevant standardization efforts.
