VideoScheme: A Programmable Video Editing System for Automation and Media Recognition
James Matthews, Peter A. Gloor, Fillia Makedon
Dartmouth PCS-TR93-187


The recent development of powerful, inexpensive hardware and software support had made digital video editing possible on personal computers and workstations. To date the video editing application category has been dominated by visual, easy-to-use, direct manipulation interfaces. These systems bring high-bandwidth human-computer interaction to a task formerly characterized by slow, inflexible, indirectly-operated machines. However, the direct manipulation computer interfaces are limited by their manual nature, and can not easily accommodate algorithmically- defined operations. This paper proposes a melding of the common direct manipulation interfaces with a programming language which we have enhanced to manipulate digital audio and video. The result is a system which can automate routine tasks as well as perform tasks based on sophisticated media recognition algorithms.
