Department: Digital Media Information Systems (DMIS)
CSIRO's Digital Media Information Systems Group is developing technologies to make better use of digital media assets. By making it easier to access, manipulate and re-use digital video and audio, our technologies mean added value for content owners, and new opportunities for audio-visual product and service providers.
We're creating tools for quickly finding relevant content, re-combining content in meaningful ways for summaries or new products, and simplifying the re-use of content for web publishing.
This type of computer-assisted manipulation and re-use of audio and video relies on a firm understanding of the content. For this reason much of our research focuses on developing tools that automatically characterise and analyse audio-visual content.
