The explosive growth of Web videos brings out the challenge of how to efficiently browse hundreds or even thousands of videos at a glance. Given an event-driven query, social media Web sites usually return a large number of videos that are diverse...

Traffic prediction and QoS transmission of real-time live VBR videos in WLANs
Wen-Kuang Kuo, Kuo-Wei Wu
Article No.: 36
DOI: 10.1145/2043612.2043614

As the demand for broadband multimedia wireless services is increasing, improving quality of service (QoS) of the widely deployed IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs (WLANs) has become crucial. To support the QoS required by a wide range of applications,...

Beat space segmentation and octave scale cepstral feature for sung language recognition in pop music
Namunu C. Maddage, Haizhou Li
Article No.: 37
DOI: 10.1145/2043612.2043615

Sung language recognition relies on both effective feature extraction and acoustic modeling. In this paper, we study rhythm based music segmentation with the frame size being the duration of the smallest note in the music, as opposed to fixed...

Efficient computation of queries on feature streams
Simone Santini
Article No.: 38
DOI: 10.1145/2043612.2043616

This article introduces the notion of virtual feature stream, a feature stream defined from a primary data stream, in which at any time only the features that are needed to compute the queries that are currently running in the system are...
