Panopticon: A Parallel Video Overview Technique

Lookup NU author(s): Dan Jackson, Professor Patrick OlivierORCiD



Panopticon is a novel method of arranging a moving video sequence that displays multiple sub-sequences in parallel. The technique provides a consistent spatio-temporal layout for context, while presenting a rapid overview of the entire sequence to the user, and yet does so in a way that allows any sub-sequence to be followed without interruption. Furthermore, this output can be generated offline as a highly efficient repeated animation loop. Panopticon can be used directly on source video as a new form of video abstract. Moreover it could be used to augment existing video skims with additional context.
