This standard covers the off-line storage of biosignals, time-stamped measurements, events, enumerations and alerts as expressed in the CEN/TC251 prestandard Vital Signs Information Representation (ENV 13734). This standard defines a file data structure and not a message data structure. This standard does not support data compression. This standard includes a method to encapsulate or refer to one or many medical images, digital video and audio files but the intention is neither to define a new format for medical or other images, video nor audio. Figure 1.1 defines the scope of this prestandard with respect to ENV 13734.
Figure 1.2 defines the scope of this standard with respect to the archival subject in ENV 13734. This standard does not address the specification of the multipatient archive nor the patient archive. The ancillary object in this standard is the multimedia section.
