Paper Abstract

We propose a smart camera which performs video analysis and generates an MPEG-7 compliant stream. By producing a content-based metadata description of the scene, the MPEG-7 camera extends the capabilities of conventional cameras. The metadata is then directly interpretable by a machine. This is especially helpful in a number of applications such as video surveillance, augmented reality and quality control. As a use case, we describe an algorithm to identify moving objects and produce the corresponding MPEG-7 description. The algorithm runs in real-time on a Matrox Iris P300C camera.
