Considerations on a Model for Video Data
Internal Note B4-42 December 1995
Video data are rich of implicit information that cannot be efficiently managed by a
computer when they are stored as unstructured linear streams. To allow a computer to
efficiently deal with this kind of information is necessary to add some further
information that offers a high level representation of what is contained in video data.
This paper addresses the issues of defining a video data model. First a brief survey of
the current approaches is presented then there is a proposal of a video model. The
proposed model distinguishes between video data and video presentations. It allows to
retrieve and browse video data and video presentations, and to build presentations.
