    We may not often consider how the video we transport and display will contribute to, if not actually define, our environment. To be sure, there are theatres designed to enhance the viewing experience as well as special rooms built for remote conferencing with simulated round tables and large displays. But these are environments where the video is often secondary to other means of communication and... View full abstract»

    Multimedia computing is a technical field with strong and pervasive connections to contemporary art. Arguably, multimedia has been an artistic medium since its beginnings; many of the most technical fields of multimedia are about delivery of creative content, and artists have always been quick to harness the expressive potential of all kinds of multimedia technology. For its second year, the ACM M... View full abstract»

    Cultural setting is an intrinsic part of what we're trying to capture and use in muitimedia systems. However, being in our own culture (both everyday culture and professional culture) we forget that multimedia interfaces and communication are culture-specific. This article gives some great insights that stem from diversity in countries (and cultures) as well as inside the interdisciplinary multime... View full abstract»

    Our new multimedia transmission and synchronization scheme for parallel servers in a wireless environment enables servers to store MPEG-4 data according to video-object-plane type. The goal of our research, therefore, was to develop an enhanced multimedia transmission scheme that can cope with load imbalance, congestion, and jitter. Accordingly, we evaluated three issues: data striping, priority q... View full abstract»

    We present a novel technique for motion annotation that adapts to a person's style and vocabulary of basic movements (gestures). The system segments continuous motion sequences into gestures, which it then documents in a personalized annotation with an intuitive hierarchical representation. Initial testing suggests that software based on this technique could be an effective teaching aid for dance ... View full abstract»

    Amateur home videos rarely convey intent effectively, primarily because of the limitations of conventional consumer-quality video cameras and the difficulties of video postprocessing. The authors describe a general approach for video-intent delivery based on offline cinematography and automated continuity editing concepts and demonstrate its use with four basic emotions: cheer, serenity, gloom, an...

    MIDI has intrinsic limitations that have held back the development of flexible microtunable systems. The author evaluates previous solutions and address the problem of pervasive microtuning in MIDI networks within the context of the general weaknesses and underusage of MIDI technology. Then the author describes the prototyped and patent-pending solution called U-Tune, which involves implementing p... View full abstract»

    Our proposed approach detects music structures by looking at beat-space segmentation, chords, singing-voice boundaries, and melody- and content-based similarity regions. Experiments illustrate that the proposed approach is capable of extracting useful information for music applications. View full abstract»

    This article discusses an innovative system for traffic management that is presently under installation in the city of Valencia. Key features of the system are to exploit open source software components and use MPEG-4 video streaming over an Internet protocol. The video streaming management is particularly sophisticated, resulting in a flexible, efficient, and reliable service. Another important e... View full abstract»

    Multimedia in all forms (images, video, graphics, music, speech) is exploding on the Web. The content needs to be annotated and indexed to enable effective search and retrieval. However, recent standards and best practices for multimedia metadata don't provide semantically rich descriptions of multimedia content. On the other hand, the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3Cs) semantic Web effort has bee... View full abstract»
