Paper Abstract

The technique of symbolic projection has been widely studied in the area of image database systems as a first step towards content-based indexing and retrieval of images. In this paper we have extended the idea of symbolic projections to video and audio data as well as to multimedia documents containing combinations of these data types. Formal definitions of symbolic video sequence, symbolic audio sequence and symbolic multimedia documents are given as are definitions of their symbolic projections. An indexing methodology based on these symbolic projections is presented. Operators which allow multimedia documents to be constructed from the basic multimedia data types are also presented. The main contribution of this paper is to provide a basis for the development of content-based retrieval of multimedia documents via extended symbolic projections.
