Title: MEDIA ASSET MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR MANAGING VIDEO SEGMENTS FROM FIXED-AREA SECURITY CAMERAS AND ASSOCIATED METHODS
Abstract:
A method for managing fixed-area video segments from fixed-area security cameras (601) using a media asset management system (600) includes collecting the fixed-area video segments from the fixed-area security cameras, associating corresponding geospatial data with each fixed-area video segment, and creating a search thesaurus including search descriptors with cross-references therebetween. At least one respective search descriptor from the search thesaurus is associated with each fixed-area video segment. The method further includes storing each fixed-area video segment, its geospatial data and its at least one search descriptor on the media asset management system (600) for later search and retrieval, such as by a security organization. The search descriptors may be geospatial search descriptors that are cross-referenced in a hierarchical relationship.
