Paper Abstract

With the progression of multimedia technology and the trend of visualization of man-machine interface, video data will become a kind of fundamental resource of data as general as text and graphics. When the data size is large, retrieving data will become a time-consuming process. Much research has been done to facilitate the retrieval of data, e.g., indexes in a database. Similarly, the video data also encounter the same problem. It is very difficult to generate video indexes automatically, because the index is application-dependent and only the user knows what indexes he actually needs. In this paper a mechanism for video data indexing is proposed which is based on the concept of objects and object motion with interactive annotation. This mechanisms provides an efficient method to access video substance without browsing the whole video data. A motion representation for the track of a moving object is presented. The access methods of video queries are introduced. A prototype of the video indexing system is implemented.
