Abstract

Advances in modern multimedia technologies have led to huge and evergrowing archives of images, audio and video in diverse application areas such as medicine, remote sensing, entertainment, education and online information services. Among all these media types, video is the most challenging one, as it combines all other media information into a single data stream. Recently, due to the decreasing cost of storage devices, higher transmission rates and improved compression techniques, digital video becomes available at an ever increasing rate.
