The pioneering guide to real-time multimedia analysis, access, and sharing across the Internet!-- Newly developed algorithms for online video analysis and access.-- State-of-the-art techniques for video indexing and retrieval.-- Exclusive, in-depth coverage of real-time online video segmentation techniques.As growth in Web-based multimedia information accelerates, and broadband access becomes increasingly widespread, traditional approaches to manipulating, searching, interpreting, skimming, and integrating multimedia data are creating unacceptable bottlenecks. This book surveys today's most advanced solutions: the state-of-the-art art in efficient, automated multimedia content analysis, indexing, and access technologies for the next-generation multimedia Web. The authors introduce state-of-the-art hierarchical video analysis software agents, and show how they can be placed strategically throughout the Internet, processing and decomposing multimedia streams in real-time, and facilitating efficient information access and sharing. They introduce new techniques for analyzing the perceptual (color, motion, and acoustic) and conceptual (semantic, text-based) contents of any multimedia stream. This book is part of the new IMSC Press series, from the Integrated Multimedia System Center at the University of Southern California, a federally funded center specializing in cutting-edge multimedia more
