Video Browsing – The Need for Interactive Video Search

Here are the slides from my talk about Video Browsing, which I gave in Klagenfurt on June 18, 2014 at the International Workshop on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing (CBMI) 2014.

Making Video Interaction on Touch Devices Consistent

The video players on smartphones and tablets typically use seeker-bars for temporal navigation in videos. In order to jump to different positions in the video you simply have to drag the seeker-bar. However, we argue that this interaction concept is inconsistent to usual interaction with other media on touch devices. For example, in a photo […]

OpenCV on Mobile Devices?

Our paper on “OpenCV Performance Measurements on Mobile Devices” has been accepted for the ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR 2014)! It investigates the run-time performance of typical image content analysis tasks performed with OpenCV on iOS-based mobile devices in direct comparison to a desktop computer. So in case you wonder whether it is […]

Mobile Multimedia Computing

  The intimate presence of mobile devices in our daily life, such as smartphones and tablets, has dramatically changed the way we connect with the world around us. Users rely on mobile devices to maintain an always-on relation to information, personal, and social networks. With a growing number of powerful embedded mobile sensors like camera, […]
