Dynamic selection of a feature-rich query frame for mobile video retrieval
In this paper, we focus on a new application of mobile visual search: snapping a photo with a mobile device of a video playing on a TV screen to automatically retrieve and stream the remainder of the video to the mobile device. When the user takes a photo of the video, the captured query frame may contain too few useful features for good retrieval performance. We design and implement a new algorithm for mobile video retrieval to accurately select a featurerich frame from a sequence of viewfinder frames in a very short temporal window determined by the user-initiated query event. Fast and accurate selection using efficiently computed Hessian scores is developed for real-time operation on mobile devices. Viewfinder frames captured before the query starts are pre-processed, while the number of viewfinder frames captured afterwards is minimized by a probabilistic optimization process. Evaluated on a large video database of 10 million frames, dynamic query frame selection provides a substa...
