Paper Abstract

Video hypermedia systems enable users to retrieve information related to an object by selecting it directly in a video sequence. In video hypermedia systems, users must locate an anchor position according to the motion of the object. But it is very laborious to locate an anchor to its suitable position according to the motion of the object. We have proposed a new automatic object tracking method and implemented it to the system. A feature of this method is that it includes various automatic error correction algorithms. We evaluated this system on effectiveness on reducing human operations. As a result, the number of operations reduced to 30.3% of the former method, and the time of operations reduced to 60.1% of the former method.
