Abstract

We describe our new mobile media content browser called a MiniDiver. MiniDiving considers media browsing as a personal experience that is viewed, personalized, saved, shared and annotated. When placed on a mobile platform, such as the iPhoneTM, consideration of the particular interface elements lead to new ways to experience media content. The MiniDiver interface elements currently supports multi-camera selection, video hyperlinks, history mechanisms and semantic and episodic video search. We compare performance of the MiniDiver on different media streams to illustrate its feasibility.
