Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper introduces a model for producing common sense metadata during video capture and describes how this technique can have a positive impact on content capture, representation, and presentation. Metadata entered into the system at the moment of capture is used to generate suggestions designed to help the videographer decide what to shoot, how to compose a shot and how to index their video material to best support their communication requirements. An approach and first experiments using a common sense database and reasoning techniques to support a partnership between the camera and videographer during video capture are presented.
