Description of the Smooth Project (VLDB 2001 Demonstration Paper)

Abstract

It implements an integrated querying, annotating, and naviagating framework relying on a generic video indexing model (see Reference ). The framework allows the structuring of videos into logical and physical units, and the annotation of these units by typed semantic objects. An index-database stores these structural and semantic information. We provide further a clear concept for capturing and querying the semantic content of multimedia objects, their correlation with low-level objects, as well as their spatio-temporal relationships.

Simplified Example of the Query Interface

The following example query :

'Find all video shots, where the player Lothar Matthäus scores a goal after a pass over 30 meters'

can be specified by using two condition sets, the first one on Person and the second one on Event (left side of the figure). On the right side you see the two matching videos which have been selected in an intermediate dialog window (not shown).
