Learning rich semantics from news video archives by style analysis
Cees G. M. Snoek, Marcel Worring, Alexander G. Hauptmann
Pages: 91-108
DOI: 10.1145/1142020.1142021
We propose a generic and robust framework for news video indexing which we founded on a broadcast news production model. We identify within this model four production phases, each providing useful metadata for annotation. In contrast to semiautomatic...

Smooth and efficient real-time video transport in the presence of wireless errors
Guang Yang, Tony Sun, Mario Gerla, M. Y. Sanadidi, Ling-Jyh Chen
Pages: 109-126
DOI: 10.1145/1142020.1142022
In this article we study a smooth and efficient transport protocol for real-time video over wireless networks. The proposed scheme, named the video transport protocol (VTP), has a new and unique end-to-end rate control mechanism that aims to avoid...

Automatic summarization of music videos
Xi Shao, Changsheng Xu, Namunu C. Maddage, Qi Tian, Mohan S. Kankanhalli, Jesse S. Jin
Pages: 127-148
DOI: 10.1145/1142020.1142023
In this article, we propose a novel approach for automatic music video summarization. The proposed summarization scheme is different from the current methods used for video summarization. The music video is separated into the music track and video...

Real-time video content analysis: QoS-aware application composition and parallel processing
Viktor S. Wold Eide, Ole-Christoffer Granmo, Frank Eliassen, Jørgen Andreas Michaelsen
Pages: 149-172
DOI: 10.1145/1142020.1142024
Real-Time content-based access to live video data requires content analysis applications that are able to process video streams in real-time and with an acceptable error rate. Statements such as this express quality of service (QoS) requirements. In...
