We present "video tapestries," which are visual summaries of video. Unlike filmstrips shown in many video players, our tapestries have no hard borders between frames, and you can zoom in smoothly to expose more detail of any time portion of the video. We call these "tapestries" because they are inspired by medieval tapestries and other art forms that depict narrative continuously, without hard borders.
The project is a collaboration between Adobe, Princeton University, and the University of Washington. We will present it in the technical papers session at SIGGRAPH '10 in Los Angeles this July. You can find more information (including a PDF of the paper and further results) at
