This paper presents a novel approach to processing encoded video sequences prior to decoding. Scene changes may be easily detected using DCT coefficients in JPEG and MPEG encoded video sequences. In addition, by analyzing the DCT coefficients, regions of interest may be isolated prior to decompression, increasing efficiency of any subsequent image(More)
A novel methodology to represent the contents of a video sequence is presented. The representation is used to allow the user to rapidly view a video sequence in order to find a particular point within the sequence and/or to decide whether the contents of the sequence are relevant to his or her needs. This system, referred to as content-based browsing, forms(More)
Large video databases, as well as many other applications involving video, such as multimedia, training, and “movie-on-demand” systems, require efficient steps to manipulate the enormous amount of data associated with full motion video. In this paper the incoming video is systematically and efficiently reduced via a frame selection procedure which takes(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to processing encoded video sequences prior to complete decoding. Scene changes are easily detected using DCT coefficients in JPEG and MPEG encoded video sequences. In addition, by analyzing the DCT coefficients, regions of interest may be isolated prior to decompression, increasing the efficiency of any subsequent image(More)
Teleaction objects (TAOs) possess private knowledge specific to the object instances. The user can create and modify the private knowledge of a TAO, so that it automatically reacts to certain events to preperform operations for generating timely responses, improving operational efficiency and maintaining consistency. Moreover, TAOs also possess a hypergraph(More)
Recent years have witnessed a significant price reduction in many enabling technologies for wide-spread deployment of multimedia to desktop PCs and workstations. This advancement has lead to an increasing demand for systems that can store, retrieve, and manipulate large volumes of multimedia information. For a multimedia information system to better meet(More)
