Paper Abstract

This paper describes an experimental system (WeatherDigest) for automatic conversion of TV weather forecasts to HTML documents. This application is presented as an example of a larger system dealing with media understanding, representation and dissemination. An object model for media representation and processing is described and WeatherDigest is presented in terms of this object model. The concepts explored in WeatherDigest are then generalized to a repository of multimedia information (media server). This server can handle requests from clients with different requirements allowing to retrieve the same information in multiple formats.
