Automatic face recognition has long been established as one of the most active research areas in computer vision. Face recognition in unconstrained environments remains challenging for most practical applications. In contrast to traditional still-image based approaches, recently the research focus has shifted towards videobased approaches. Video data provides rich and redundant information, which can be exploited to resolve the inherent ambiguities of image-based recognition like sensitivity to

Face recognition has also been considered in the content-based video retrieval setup, for example, character-based video search. In this chapter, we review existing research on face recognition and retrieval in video. The relevant techniques are comprehensively surveyed and discussed. D. Schonfeld et al.
