PEANO: Pictorial Enriched Annotation of Video

Abstract: In this DEMO, we present a tool set for video digital library management that allows i) structural annotation of edited videos in MPEG-7 by automatically extracting shots and clips; ii) automatic semantic annotation based on perceptual similarity against a taxonomy enriched with pictorial concepts iii) video clip access and hierarchical summarization with stand-alone and web interface iv) access to clips from mobile platform in GPRS-UMTS videostreaming. The tools can be applied in different domain-specific Video Digital Libraries. The main novelty is the possibility to enrich the annotation with pictorial concepts that are added to a textual taxonomy in order to make the automatic annotation process more fast and often effective. The resulting multimedia ontology is described in the MPEG-7 framework. The PEANO (Perceptual Annotation of Video) tool has been tested over video art, sport (Soccer, Olimpic Games 2006, Formula 1) and news clips.
