Video Information Processing • These are the technologies to extract information from video using visual and audio channels • By extracting/identifying the information, “effective” condensation/summary techniques can be applied through information fusion or recognition steps • We define a type of information a “modality” • Transcript/Speech • On-screen characters • Face • Visual features
Every Bit Counts • MMS size is limited to within hundred KB • In order to delivery “useful” information to viewer • Condensation/summary techniques are required to locate/prioritize the most important bits • Bandwidth cost is relatively higher than other channels • the “value” of the content transmitted is curial to successfully MMS business • Utilize the “value” of the bandwidth use, only transmitting the important bits
Main Features of Video2MMS • Advertisement removal • TV program identification • Video condensation/summary • MMS creation and adaptation for different mobile handsets
Advertisement Removal • Based on the logo detection techniques developed, TV program and non TV program segmentscan be separated automatically TV Broadcast Non Program Program Non Program
TV Program Identification • Based on the visual features and audio characteristics, the desire TV program can be identified
Video Summary Video Condensation / Summary • Condense the long video into short slide show presentation • Segment the video into different scene • Two pass minimum difference color histogram • Choose the most representative shots • Video editing style • Longest scene
MMS Creation and Adaptation • Different handsets have different MMS size and screen size • Nokia 7650, 3650 - 100KB, 176 x 136 • SonyEricsson T68i, T300 – 30KB, 101 x 80 • Panasonic GD88 – 45KB, 176 x 136 • Convert the pictures to correct screen size • Utilize the MMS size for most information (number of pictures and duration) • Configurable for new handsets
MMS Matrix MMS Size = audio size + (picture size * n) Audio size = length of audio * 0.8k, (4.75 bit-rate) Picture size = f(screen size, number of colors)
Mobile Internet Video Clips Conversion • Control third party modules to cut and convert video into short video clips • Different handsets have different MMS size and screen size • 3GPP format • RealVideo format • Microsoft Windows Media Format • Clips size configurable for different usage • 100KB for MMS delivery • >100KB for video streaming
