The Semantic Video Annotation Suite (SVAS) enables film analysts to efficiently annotate video footage. The tool provides several automatic feature extraction methods which support the user with annotation and navigation. The most innovative automatic module included as a plug-in into SVAS is an object recognition and search tool based on Difference-of-Gaussian local key points and computed SIFT descriptors as local low-level features for every frame in the video. This allows the recognition of specific objects in the whole video.
You can download a fully functional demonstrator of the SVAS from the following FTP server (Please ensure to have administration rights on your PC in order to install the tool correctly!): ftp://SVAS@digital.joanneum.at
Note: After the installation SVAS can be used on the machine for a period of 30 days. On each start of the application a dialog is shown with the information on using a trial version and the option to activate. If you want to test SVAS for a longer period, please contact us at SemVidAnnTool@joanneum.at and provide the following information:
- your name
- name and address of your company / institution
- purpose of using SVAS
- duration of your extended trials
- both user codes from the activation dialog when starting SVAS
We will contact you at our earliest convenience and send you the activation codes for your extended trial period.
