BilVideo: MPEG-7 Compliant Video Database Management System

BilVideo: MPEG-7 Compliant Video Database Management System

This video was recorded at MUSCLE Conference joint with VITALAS Conference. BilVideo is a video database management system that provides integrated support for spatiotemporal, semantic, low-level feature queries. These queries were processed by a rule-based system based on a knowledge-base, a feature and object-relational databases in the earlier version of BilVideo. BilVideo is now MPEG-7 compatible, which is a standard for describing multimedia content. An XML-native feature database for efficient indexing, and an MPEG-7 feature extractor tool are used for this purpose. New version of our video DBMS is also based on client-server architecture, where users may specify queries by using the visual query interface. With the help of MPEG-7 support, it will be possible to process low-level feature queries (color, shape, texture, motion) and integrate with other multimedia platforms such as Multimedia Metadata Management (4M) of CNR ISTI, and Web Content platform of CEA LIST. MPEG-7 compatibility issues and the new system design are briefly discussed in the presentation.
