Abstract

In this chapter we will discuss issues related to searching and browsing a shared video database. The discussion will be founded on a review of characteristics of video information and video database applications, and we will discuss requirements to be fulfilled by video databases in shared environments. The issues that will be discussed include video database architectures, video algebra operations, video querying, and video browsing. We have developed an experimental environment called Video STAR (Video STorage And Retrieval) that will be used to illustrate the issues being discussed.
