Re-cinematography: Improving the camerawork of casual video
Michael L. Gleicher, Feng Liu
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/1404880.1404882

This article presents an approach to postprocessing casually captured videos to improve apparent camera movement. Re-cinematography transforms each frame of a video such that the video better follows cinematic conventions. The approach...

Correlative multilabel video annotation with temporal kernels
Guo-Jun Qi, Xian-Sheng Hua, Yong Rui, Jinhui Tang, Tao Mei, Meng Wang, Hong-Jiang Zhang
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/1404880.1404883

Automatic video annotation is an important ingredient for semantic-level video browsing, search and navigation. Much attention has been paid to this topic in recent years. These researches have evolved through two paradigms. In the first paradigm,...

A dynamic decision network framework for online media adaptation in stroke rehabilitation
Yinpeng Chen, Weiwei Xu, Hari Sundaram, Thanassis Rikakis, Sheng-Min Liu
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/1404880.1404884

In this article, we present a media adaptation framework for an immersive biofeedback system for stroke patient rehabilitation. In our biofeedback system, media adaptation refers to changes in audio/visual feedback as well as changes in physical...

Equipment allocation in video-on-demand network deployments
Frederic Thouin, Mark Coates
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/1404880.1404885

Video-on-Demand (VoD) services are very user-friendly, but also complex and resource demanding. Deployments involve careful design of many mechanisms where content attributes and usage models should be taken into account. We define, and propose a...
