Paper Abstract

The soon to be released MPEG-7 standard provides a Multimedia Content Description Interface. In other words, it provides a rich set of tools to describe the content with a view to facilitating applications such as content based querying, browsing and searching of multimedia content. In this paper, we describe practical applications of MPEG-7 tools. We use descriptors of features such as color, shape and motion to both index and analyze the content. The aforementioned descriptors stem from our previous work and are currently in the draft international MPEG-7 standard. In our previous work, we have shown the efficacy of each of the descriptors individually. In this paper, we show how we combine color and motion to effectively browse video in our first application. In our second application, we show how we can combine shape and color to recognize objects in real time. We will present a demonstration of our system at the conference. We have already successfully demonstrated it to the Japanese press.
