Embedded indexing in scalable video coding
Effective encoding and indexing of audiovisual documents are two key aspects for enhancing the multimedia user experience. In this paper we propose the embedding of low-level content descriptors into a scalable videocoding bit-stream by jointly optimizing encoding and indexing performance. This approach provides a new type of bit-stream where part of the information is used for both content encoding and content description, allowing the so called ”Midstream Content Access”. To support this concept, a novel technique based on the appropriate combination of Vector Quantization and Scalable Video Coding has been developed and evaluated. More specifically, the key-pictures of each video GOP are encoded at a first draft level by using an optimal visual-codebook, while the residual errors are encoded using a conventional approach. The same visual-codebook is also used to encode all the keypictures of a video shot, which boundaries are dynamically estimated. In this way, the visual-cod...
