VideoCycle: User-Friendly Navigation by Similarity in Video Databases

  • Conference paper
Advances in Multimedia Modeling


VideoCycle is a candidate application for this second Video Browser Showdown challenge. VideoCycle allows interactive intra-video and inter-shot navigation with dedicated gestural controllers. MediaCycle, the framework it is built upon, provides media organization by similarity, with a modular architecture enabling most of its workflow to be performed by plugins: feature extraction, clustering, segmentation, summarization, intra-media and inter-segment visualization. MediaCycle focuses on user experience with user interfaces that can be tailored to specific use cases.
