Description

This book provides an in-depth treatment of the three important topics related to image and video databases: restoration, watermarking and retrieval. It is the result of the participation of the Delft University of Technology in the European Union ACTS program, a pre-competitive R&D program on Advanced Communications Technologies and Services (1994-1998). In particular the book has benefited from participation in the AURORA and SMASH projects respectively automated film and video restoration and storage for multimedia systems (watermarking & retrieval).
