Paper Abstract

Video surveillance is gaining increasing popularity as a possible response to various threats such as terrorism, vandalism and crime. The need for automated analysis of the events monitored by video cameras and support for fast search and browsing of such recorded video data is evident. In this paper we present VISSTM, a prototype system that uses advanced video segmentation and MPEG-7 technology to analyse and index visual events in real time. Visual features such as shape, colour and texture are extracted and used to describe the images stored on the system. A search of large volumes of data can be performed very quickly. We show examples of the fast search made possible with VISSTM.
