As digital libraries and film databases grow, we will need methods to assist us in
the synthesis and analysis of digital video. and objects. Since the information in
video databases can be measured in thousands of gigabytes of uncompressed data,
video analysis methods which ignore the redundancy in video sequences can not
be considered practical methods. Thus, we integrate the video analysis methods
with video compression in order to exploit the redundancy in video sequences.
The method is applicable to a wide range of applications in digital libraries and
the film industry, which include searching video databases, synthesis and analysis
of digital libraries, human-computer interaction, and film producing.
