Abstract

MPEG-7 has emerged as the standard for multimedia data content description for efficiently describing multimedia content. In this context, its primary goal is to provide flexible and effective searching and retrieval of multimedia resources. Most of the earlier work on MPEG-7 description schemes (DSs) and descriptors (Ds) focuses on the description of a single multimedia document, whereas MPEG-7 can be further exploited to support more advances implementations under multimedia database systems. Therefore, it is important to reconsider issues related to high level multimedia modeling and representation, in the light of the MPEG-7 perspective. In this paper, we propose a high level multimedia representation and description scheme based on multi-level video modeling and semantic video classification. The proposed multi-level multimedia representation and DSs are expected to support more effective video content indexing and accessing operations. The presented DSs and Ds are further described by using the XML Schema language, which has been adopted as the basis of the Description Definition Language (DDL) of the MPEG-7 standard.
