Previous research in digital video orchestration has demonstrated the computer's ability to edit sequences based upon a cooperation between video databases and encoded story knowledge. These systems, however, manipulate sound and picture as a single unit. The next generation digital video systems will need to combine the encoded story knowledge with the ability to manipulate audio and video separately. This research creates the infrastructure to support computer orchestrated editing in which sound and picture are treated as separate, complementary tracks.

MILESTONE is made of two modules:

A video annotation component which builds upon previous research in video databases provides the means to create a knowledge representation.

A robust set of editing functions.
