Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR THE ALIGNMENT OF INTRINSIC AND EXTRINSIC AUDIO-VISUAL INFORMATION
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE POUR L'ALIGNEMENT D'INFORMATION AUDIOVISUELLE INTRINSEQUE ET EXTRINSEQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method are provided for the alignment of intrinsic and extrinsic audio-visual information using classifications of the information and is particularly useful for aligning intrinsic and extrinsic information of different languages. The system comprises an intrinsic content analyser (2,3) that is communicatively connected to an audio-visual source (1), such as a film source that may be in a dubbed language. The film is searched for intrinsic data that is extracted and classified. Further, the system comprises an extrinsic content analyser (5,6) communicatively connected to an extrinsic information source (4), such as an original language film screenplay available through the Internet. The system searches the extrinsic information source, retrieves and then classifies the extrinsic information. The intrinsic and extrinsic information is aligned by correlating (7) the classifications to provide a multi-source data structure. The correlation is independent of the language of the intrinsic and the extrinsic information.
(FR) Système et procédé pour l'alignement d'information audiovisuelle intrinsèque et extrinsèque reposant sur l'utilisation de classifications de l'information, particulièrement utiles dans ce type d'alignement appliqué à différentes langues. Le système comprend un analyseur de contenu intrinsèque (2,3) relié communiquant à une source audiovisuelle (1), du type source de film pouvant être en langue doublée. On effectue dans le film une recherche de données intrinsèques aux fins d'extraction et de classification. En outre, le système comprend un analyseur de contenu extrinsèque (5,6) relié communiquant à une source d'information extrinsèque (4), du type scénario de film en langue originale disponible sur Internet. On aligne l'information intrinsèque et extrinsèque par corrélation (7) entre les classifications pour donner une structure de données multisource. La corrélation est indépendante de la langue de l'information intrinsèque et extrinsèque.
