Figures and Tables from this paper

Advances in interactive digital multimedia systems

This paper introduces basic concepts in digital multimedia systems and surveys recent literature regarding developments in interactive videodiscs, which first made images and video accessible through computer systems.

Simplifying Video Editing with Intelligent Interaction

Several visualization and interaction techniques that use video metadata, including a transcript, to mitigate the problems of editing in this domain are described and implemented in Silver, an authoring tool designed to make it easier for novice users to edit video.

Video editing with pen-based technology

In this research, digital ink is replaced by video content, aiming to provide a more familiar and creative interaction for video editing and to study how pen gestures can be used on this context as well as what kind of changes are needed in the interface.

Media streams: representing video for retrieval and repurposing

Thesis (Ph. D.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Program in Media Arts & Sciences, 1995.

Learning Video Segmentation and Presentation System Based on Visual and Audio Information

This paper presents how the video recording concept can be further extended to realize a video segmentation system, which is based on video content information, to enable a more realistic and useful system for the discussion in distance education.

Object-oriented video: interaction with real-world objects through live video

Object-Oriented Video techniques are described allowing object-oriented interactions, including the use of real-world objects in live video as reference cues, direct manipulation of them, and graphic overlays based on them, which enable users to work in a real spatial context conveyed by the video.

Hypervideos and Interactive Multimedia Presentations

This article analyzed more than 400 papers for relevant work in hypervideos and interactive multimedia presentations to discover a set of trends and unsolved problems, and propose directions for future research.

Automatic Video Segmentation and Story-Based Authoring in E-Learning

This paper proposes a story-based editing and browsing system with the automatic video segmentation, and points out that a video classification technology can be further integrated to enhance the tool by using visual and audio information.

Video mosaic: laying out time in a physical space

Video Mosaic provides users with the ability to combine the best of both worlds: elements of a paper video storyboard are used as input to an on-line video editing system to take advantage of the best aspects of each.

IMPACT: an interactive natural-motion-picture dedicated multimedia authoring system

A new approach to achieving a natural-motion-picture dedicated multi-media authoring system is proposed, which has several image-processing functions that include object extraction of the picture, semi-automatic visualization of motion pictures structure, and certain descriptions of the scene.



Structured content modeling for cinematic information

The functional requirements for a structured content model are presented, and a video editing and viewing environment, currently under development at the MIT Media Laboratory, which utilizes content information is discussed.

Movie-maps: An application of the optical videodisc to computer graphics

An interactive, dynamic map has been built using videodisc technology to engage the user in a simulated “drive” through an unfamiliar space, and to incorporate optical and electronic image processing to provide a more responsive, visually complete representation of an environment.

EVA: an experimental video annotator for symbolic analysis of video data

The issues surrounding capturing, recording, analyzing and presenting video data are described and a prototype system is described, called EVA, that is designed to address some of these issues.

NEW ORLEANS IN TRANSITION , 1983-1986 : The Interactive Delivery of a Cinematic Case Study

How does a city change? New Orleans in Transition, 1983-1986 is a 3 hour cinematic case study of urban change and design negotiation. The edited film is being released as a videodisc set and can be

Laboratory for emulation and study of integrated and coordinated media communication

A Bell Communications Research facility, the Integrated Media Architecture Laboratory (IMAL), designed to flexibly emulate a wide range of current and future network and CPE environments with a focus on multiple media communications is discussed.

Reconfigurable video

Reconfigurable VideoTM is a software technology designed to assist in the organization and delivery of visual databases on optical videodisc which integrates a relational database of documentary video, audio transcripts, and expert analysis into a multi-media educational research tool for the humanities and social sciences.
