Video Tapestry is a novel approach to navigation video. It was created by Adobe Creative Technologies. It uses the same content-awareness algorithm as in Photoshop to detect faces and points of interest. It compresses and blends video frames in seamless tapestries at several zoom levels.
This presentation takes you through the process of using the result of this C++ research project and exploring its possibilities as a commercial navigation and exploration product, with multi-touch interaction.
The end product will be demonstrated on the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The effort was done as part of MTVNetworks Research and Development. Video Tapestry was showcased at Adobe Max 2010 as part of the sneaks peek and featured in the Winter edition of UK Computer Arts magazine.
