Automatic Video Summary and Description
Multimedia technology has been applied to many kinds of applications and the amount of multimedia data is growing dramatically. Especially the usage of digital video data is very popular today. Thus, content- based indexing and retrieval in video is getting more important in the future.In this paper, we investigate an efficient and reasonable solution to describe video contents, and propose an automatic generation of the summary of video contents with as least manual interaction as possible. Based on the summary of video contents, we extract the key features of the summary to represent its content and produce the description of the video content in MPEG-7 format using XML. We illustrate our approach by developing a system that can support content-based browsing and querying on the WWW.
