A Key-Frame-Oriented Video Browser

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7131)


We propose a video browser facilitating known-item search in a single video. Key frames are presented as four images at a time and can be navigated quickly in both forward and backward directions using a slider. Alternatively, key frames can be displayed automatically at different frame rates. The user may choose between three mappings of key frames to the four key frame widgets based on video time stamps and color similarity.
