Paper Abstract

Inherent in Kodak's solid-state high-speed video recording and playback systems is the ability to randomly access any given pixel within a 4D volume. Specifically, this refers to the ability to access a pixel of any given (x.y) coordinate of a given frame time t and of a given recording session s. A new set of techniques is presented for the rapid evaluation of entire video sequences which takes advantage of this wealth of video data. This technique is called `streak visualization'. As implied in the name, streak visualization combines the analytical compactness of a streak image with the versatility and interactivity implied by a visualization tool. Streak visualization generally involves the creation of appropriate 2D surfaces which slices the data volume in such a way as to reveal useful information. As will be demonstrated through a few illustrative examples, there are many possible applications of this technique.
