Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 513)


This book develops a new framework for computed synchronization and demonstrates it within the context of several applications. A major contribu­tion of this research is the development of a cross-modal information retrieval (CMIR) system that can serve as a test-bed for application of computed synchro­nization technologies: the Xtrieve cross-modal information retrieval system. Xtrieve provides infrastructure in support of media alignment technologies and is the implementation environment for the solutions presented in Chap­ters 5 and 6. Xtrieve also provides a tool for exploring the use of computed synchronization technologies in information retrieval applications.
