  • LIVE@WEB.COM Using CBIR Technology in InteractiveWeb-TV 

    Morsdorf, Felix; Volmer, Stephan (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    The increasing amount of internet based television broadcasts has lead to new approachs to interactivity in TV programs. We developed a system which is able to supply the viewer of the program upon interaction with information ...
  • Non-Conventional Interfaces using Stamp Controllers 

    Mallinder, Hugh; Jones, Huw (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    Artists continue to search for new methods of creation of artworks. The trend to interactive multimedia installation work requires systems that allow participants to interact in subtle ways. The paper describes a number ...
  • Screen Space: Depiction and the Space of Interactive Media 

    Davis, Stephen Boyd; Jones, Huw (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    The spatial properties of digital interactive multimedia are analysed and contrasted with those of pictures, and of narrative feature films and factual television. These media have developed distinctive spatial methods and ...
  • Buoy Indexing of Metric Feature Spaces for Fast Approximate Image Queries 

    Volmer, Stephan (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    A novel indexing scheme for solving the problem of nearest neighbor queries in generic metric feature spaces for content-based image retrieval is proposed to break the 'dimensionality curse.' The basis for the proposed ...
  • Interactive, Evolutionary Textured Sound Composition 

    Fels, Sidney; Manzolli, Jonatas (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    We describe a system that maps the interaction between two people to control a genetic process for generating music. We start with a population of melodies encoded genetically. This population is allowed to breed every ...
  • Content Based Retrieval of VRML Objects - An Iterative and Interactive Approach 

    Elad, Michael; Tal, Ayellet; Ar, Sigal (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    We examine the problem of searching a database of three-dimensional objects (given in VRML) for objects similar to a given object. We introduce an algorithm which is both iterative and interactive. Rather than base the ...
  • Authentication of Volume Data Using Wavelet-Based Foveation 

    Kankanhalli, M. S.; Chang, E.-C.; Guan, X.; Huang, Z.; Wu, Y. (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    3D volume data has been increasingly used in many appli- cations. The digital nature of the data allows easy creation, copying and distribution. However, it also allows ease of manipulation which can enable wilful or ...
  • DynaVideo - A Dynamic Video Distribution Service 

    Leite, Luiz Eduardo; Alves, Renata; Lemos, Guido; Batista, Thais (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    Most solutions proposed to implement audio and video distribution services have been designed for specific infrastructures or have been tailored to specific application requirements, such as stream and clients types which ...
  • Sobol Partial Distortion Algorithm for Fast Full Search in Block Motion Estimation 

    Quaglia, Davide; Montrucchino, Bartolomeo (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    Block motion estimation is a cpu intensive task for video encoding. Many fast algorithms have been developed to solve this problem, trying to improve both block searching and block matching. Some of them reduce the image ...
  • Abstractions in Multimedia Authoring: The MAVA Approach 

    Hauser, Juergen; Tian, Jing (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    The support of abstractions in authoring systems increases the efficiency of the specification of multimedia documents. Authoring based on a very low abstraction, for example script programming, is very complex and time ...
  • A Server-based Interactive Remote Walkthrough 

    Cohen-Or, Daniel; Noimark, Yuval; Zvi, Tali (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    This paper presents a server-based remote walkthrough system. The client is assumed to be a thin client, like a handset or a mobile device, with no strong processor but with some embedded video chip. The server holds the ...
  • Extended Format Definition and Quality-driven Format Negotiation in Multimedia Systems 

    Lohse, Marcos; Slusallek, Philipp; Wambach, Patrick (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    Multimedia middleware needs to support a wide variety of devices together with their respective data formats. This becomes increasingly relevant and difficult in a distributed environment where new devices and formats ...
  • Reusing Motions and Models in Animations 

    Huang, Akanksha Z.; Prabhakaran, B.; Ruiz, C. R.; Jr., (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    Computer animated 3D models have been increasingly used in multimedia presentations because they can be viewed and manipulated directly in 3D. In this paper, we propose a database approach for this problem. Our main objective ...
  • 3D-dvshop: a 3D Dynamic Virtual Shop 

    Sann, A.; Montrucchio, B.; Montuschi, P.; Demartini, C. (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    In recent years, virtual rality has shown all its potential in a large spectrum of applications: training, simulation, CAD, and so on. Although existing technologies allow the creation of immersive virtual reality browsing ...
  • Realising Real Time Multimedia Groupware on the Web 

    Allison, Colin; Bateman, Martin; Ruddle, Alan (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    Real-time audio and video conferencing has not yet been satisfactorily integrated into web-based groupware environments. Conferencing tools are at best only loosely linked to other parts of a shared working environment. ...
  • Adaptive Visualization of Distributed 3D Documents Using Image Streaming Techniques 

    Loeffler, Jobst; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
    With the emergence of open information spaces such as digital libraries, advanced techniques for interactive visualization of complex and protected 3D documents are needed. This paper presents a new visualization concept ...
