    MPEG-7 multimedia description schemes (MDSs) are metadata structures for describing and annotating audio-visual (AV) content. The description schemes (DSs) provide a standardized way of describing in XML the important concepts related to AV content description and content management in order to facilitate searching, indexing, filtering, and access. The DSs are defined using the MPEG-7 description ... View full abstract»

    The MPEG-7 sound-recognition descriptors and description schemes consist of tools for indexing audio media using probabilistic sound models. The descriptors provide containers for category labels, as well as data structures for quantitative information about sound content. We describe the normative tools, as well as informative methods, for automatic description extraction and sound matching View full abstract»

    The words spoken in an audio-visual document form an obvious and intuitive metadata component. This component is essential to ensure comprehensive coverage of audio-visual content by the MPEG-7 standard. With manual transcription prohibitively costly, such metadata will typically be derived from automatic speech recognition systems. The errors inherent in the output of such extraction tools cause ...

    This paper gives an overview of Part 1 of ISO/IEC 15939 (MPEG-7 Systems). It first presents the objectives of the MPEG-7 Systems activity. In the MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 standards, “Systems” referred only to overall architecture, multiplexing, and synchronization. In MPEG-4, in addition to these issues, the Systems part encompasses interactive scene description, content description, and prog... View full abstract»

    MPEG-7, formally known as the Multimedia Content Description Interface, includes standardized tools (descriptors, description schemes, and language) enabling structural, detailed descriptions of audio-visual information at different granularity levels (region, image, video segment, collection) and in different areas (content description, management, organization, navigation, and user interaction)....

    This paper presents an overview of the MPEG-7 description definition language (DDL). The DDL provides the syntactic rules for creating, combining, extending and refining MPEG-7 descriptors (Ds) and description schemes (DSs). In the interests of interoperability, the W3C's XML Schema language, with the addition of certain MPEG-7-specific extensions, has been chosen as the DDL. This paper describes ... View full abstract»

    The MPEG-7 visual standard under development specifies content-based descriptors that allow users or agents (or search engines) to measure similarity in images or video based on visual criteria, and can be used to efficiently identify, filter, or browse images or video based on visual content. More specifically, MPEG-7 specifies color, texture, object shape, global motion, or object motion feature... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an overview of color and texture descriptors that have been approved for the Final Committee Draft of the MPEG-7 standard. The color and texture descriptors that are described in this paper have undergone extensive evaluation and development during the past two years. Evaluation criteria include effectiveness of the descriptors in similarity retrieval, as well as extraction, st... View full abstract»

    This paper describes tools and techniques for representing motion information in the context of MPEG-7 standardization for multimedia description interfaces. It first gives an overview of the current organization of the set of MPEG-7 motion descriptions, then illustrates this by presenting two of them, motion activity and motion trajectory, in more detail. It explains how to extract them from the ... View full abstract»
