The focal goal of our research is to develop a general framework which can automatically analyze the sports video, detect the sports events, and finally offer an efficient and user-friendly system for sports video retrieval. In our earlier work, a novel multimedia data mining technique was proposed for automatic soccer event extraction by adopting multimodal feature analysis. Until now, this framework has been performed on the detection of goal and corner kick events and the results are quite impressive. Correspondingly, in this work, the detected video events are modeled and effectively stored in the database. A temporal query model is designed to satisfy the comprehensive temporal query requirements, and the corresponding graphical query language is developed. The advanced characteristics make our model particularly well suited for searching events in a large scale video database.
