Part I of this article provided our vision of a media-aware Semantic Web in the form of a business presentation scenario and derived from it a number of problems regarding the semantic content description of media units. We discussed the multimedia production chain, in particular emphasizing the role of progressive metadata production. As a result we distilled a set of media-based metadata production requirements and showed how current media production environments fail to address these. We

We discuss syntactic and semantic problems, ontological issues for media semantics and the problems of applying the theoretical concepts to real world applications. We conclude with implications of the findings for future action with respect to the activities the community should take.
