Intelligent Multimedia Replay
When we go back 10 years or so, public safety organizations such as
police and ambulance only used audio communications, mostly based on trunked
radio (walkie-talkies). However, these days, multimedia is everywhere: all
police cars have cameras on board; a crime scene is completely captured using
photos and video; and even alarm numbers such as 911 are extended with
multimedia capabilities (for example in the 911 NG project).
The problem with this large amount of media is that it is difficult to get
the important information out of it. For example, a video of a crime scene
can take up to a few hours and watching the complete video from start to end
is probably not the best approach. It would be much better if a video could
be enhanced with metadata in order to have a more intelligent way to navigate
The main goal of this "afstudeerproject" is to investigate how videos (and
other media elements) can be enhanced in such a way that intelligent replay
is possible. This will make it possible, for example to police officers, to
analyze a big incident or crime case. As a proof of concept, the main ideas
of such an intelligent replay support tool must be implemented in a prototype
version in order to get feedback from the future users of such tools.
