MPEG Image and Video Signature

“MPEG Image and Video Signature” by M. Bober and S. Paschalakis appears in “The MPEG Representation of Digital Media” by Leonardo Chiariglione (Springer, 2011).

This book provides an overview of the basic technologies and mechanisms underpinning the operation of MPEG standards and looks at what’s behind MP3, digital television, online movies and why these innovations changed the world. The “MPEG Image and Video Signature” chapter takes a closer look at the MPEG-7 Image and Video Signature Tools, collectively known as the MPEG-7 Visual Signature Tools, which were designed specifically for the task of fast and robust visual content identification, commonly referred to as “copy detection”.
