Near-lossless semantic video summarization and its applications to video analysis
Tao Mei, Lin-Xie Tang, Jinhui Tang, Xian-Sheng Hua
Article No.: 16
DOI: 10.1145/2487268.2487269

The ever increasing volume of video content on the Web has created profound challenges for developing efficient indexing and search techniques to manage video data. Conventional techniques such as video compression and summarization strive for the...

Information recall task impact in olfaction-enhanced multimedia
Oluwakemi A. Ademoye, Gheorghita Ghinea
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/2487268.2487270

Enhancing multimedia applications with olfactory sensations is one of the last challenges in the area. While there is evidence, both scientific and anecdotal, that olfactory cues help users in information recall tasks, there is a lack of work when...

A conditional access system with efficient key distribution and revocation for mobile pay-TV systems
Lo-Yao Yeh, Jiun-Long Huang
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/2487268.2487271

Current mobile pay-TV systems have two types of Conditional Access Systems (CAS): group-key-based and public-key systems. The best feature of group-key-based systems is the ability to enjoy the broadcast nature in delivery multimedia contents,...

A generalized tamper localization approach for reversible watermarking algorithms
Ruchira Naskar, Rajat Subhra Chakraborty
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/2487268.2487272

In general reversible watermarking algorithms, the convention is to reject the entire cover image at the receiver end if it fails authentication, since there is no way to detect the exact locations of tampering. This feature may be exploited by an...

A self-similarity approach to repairing large dropouts of streamed music
Jonathan Doherty, Kevin Curran, Paul Mckevitt
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/2487268.2487273

Enjoyment of audio has now become about flexibility and personal freedom. Digital audio content can be acquired from many sources and wireless networking allows digital media devices and associated peripherals to be unencumbered by wires. However,...

Interactive partner control in close interactions for real-time applications
Edmond S. L. Ho, Jacky C. P. Chan, Taku Komura, Howard Leung
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/2487268.2487274

This article presents a new framework for synthesizing motion of a virtual character in response to the actions performed by a user-controlled character in real time. In particular, the proposed method can handle scenes in which the characters are...
