By integrating recently developed content-based image retrieval techniques into an existing asset tracking framework, we can facilitate reuse of archived material by making the contents of the archive searchable on the basis of visual content. We can also produce summaries of video sequences which reduce them to the essential objects and action, allowing low bandwidth transmission and the generation of easily understood 2-D `comic strip' summaries. </ABSTRACT><URL>http://www.faraday.gla.ac.uk/papers/cwills-eguk01.pdf</URL></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
