Video database research falls into the following categories: video data models, video extraction, video query language, and video index structures.
The past decade has seen explosive growth in the ability of individuals to create and/or capture digital video, leading slowly to large scale personal and corporate digital video banks. Over the last 8–10 years, there has been a tremendous amount of work on creating video databases. Video database research falls primarily into the following categories:
Video data models. What kind of data about a video should we store?
Video extraction. How should this data be automatically extracted from a video?
Video query language. How should we query this data?
Video index structures. How should we index this data for faster retrieval?
We discuss multiple potential answers to these four important topics.
Video Data Models
Throughout this paper, we will assume that a video υ is divided up into a sequence b...
