Abstract

As the use of digital audio and video is increasing so also is the need for a large scale database support of these new data types growing. Users want to share audio and video information and will like to use the same video information in several different presentations. To support video information sharing and reuse an architecture of video information and its contents is proposed. Three levels are defined: The presentation level consists of edited video presentations, the recording level consists of the basic recordings used in the different presentations, and the annotation level consists of descriptions of the contents of the individual recordings. The architecture will support applications in both creating and running a presentation, as well as in annotating and retrieving video information.
