Unified Intelligent Access to Heterogeneous Audiovisual Content
The overall objective of FAETHON project is to develop an integrated information system that offers enhanced search and retrieval capabilities to users of digital audiovisual (a/v) archives.
This novel system will exploit the advances in handling a/v content and related metadata, as introduced by MPEG-4 and worked out by MPEG-7, to offer advanced access services characterized by the tri-fold "semantic phrasing of the request (query)", "unified handling" and "personalized response".
