Content with multiple streams to be delivered simultaneously

Examples may be

  • a) audio with music scores,
  • b) side-by-side images, and
  • c) image tiling.
  • d) 3D delivery

Proposed naming convention is below.

For reference in the following examples, the mathematical x, y, and z axes are used. Lowest x numbers are at the left, highest x numbers at the right; lowest y values are at the bottom, highest y values are at the top. Lowest z values are on the 2-dimensional plane, highest are the farthest away from the 2 dimensional plane.

For (a): different formats, delivered simultaneously

use different extensions, same file name.

For (b): multiple images to deliver simultaneously, in row or column format

add x or y values to filename to indicate relative delivery location. For example:

  1. u0055_0000123_1x0000001.tif
  2. u0055_0000123_2x0000001.tif
  3. u0055_0000123_3x0000001.tif

The image tagged "1x" will be the one on the left; "3x" will be on the far right, and "2x" in the middle. If the delivery for the images is to be in a column, instead of a row, use y values instead.

  1. u0055_0000123_1y0000001.tif
  2. u0055_0000123_2y0000001.tif
  3. u0055_0000123_3y0000001.tif

The image tagged "1y" will be the one on the bottom; "3y" will be on the top, and "2y" in the middle.

For (c): tiled images

use both x and y axis values in the filenames.

  1. u0055_0000123_1x1y0000001.tif
  2. u0055_0000123_2x1y0000001.tif
  3. u0055_0000123_1x2y0000001.tif
  4. u0055_0000123_2x2y0000001.tif

In this situation, there are 2 rows and 2 columns. Bottom left is the image tagged "1x1y"; Top left is the image tagged "1x2y"; Top right is the image tagged "2x2y", and bottom right is the image tagged "2x1y".

For (d): 3D delivery

Similarly, the z axis may be added for 3-dimensional image delivery. The letters should always be used in alphabetical order, with the number preceding the letter of the axis to which it applies.
