The Multi-stripe Video Browser for Tablets

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8936)


We present a prototype for video search and browsing in large video collections optimized for tablets. The content of the videos is organized into sub-shots, which are visualized by frame stripes of different configurations. Moreover, all videos can be filtered by color layout and motion patterns to reduce search effort. An additional overview mode enables the parallel inspection of multiple filtered or unfiltered videos at once. This mode should be both easy to use and still efficient, and therefore well-suited for novice users.
