Proceedings. International Conference on Image Processing  
This paper presents a novel approach to the multiresolution analysis and scalability in video indexing and retrieval. A scalable algorithm for video parsing and key-frame extraction is introduced. The technique is based on real-time analysis of MPEG motion variables and scalable metrics simplification by discrete contour evolution. Furthermore, a hierarchical key-frame retrieval method using scalable colour histogram analysis is presented. It offers customisable levels of detail in the
