Extended Package-Segment Model and Adaptable Applications
This paper aims to present and verify the Extended Package-Segment Model. It provides a more flexible representation of logical structure of multimedia content than the Package-Segment Model (PS-Model) which we have already proposed. The PS-Model structure represents recursively ways to divide content. It is suitable to represent logical structure of content generated by content-based analysis. However, there are also some restrictions in generating the PS-Model structure. To solve these problems, we have reconsidered the generation rules and here propose a new data model called the Extended Package-Segment Model (EPS-Model). The EPS-Model structure can represent scenes and cuts that axe focused. Moreover the EPS-Model inherits the advantages of the PS-Model framework such as indexing, browsing, and retrieval mechanisms.
We introduce two experimental systems based on the EPS-Model structure. We verified that this EPS-Model has flexibility and suitability of representation of the structure for multimedia content in any application.
