Video management research has been neglecting the increased attractiveness of using camera-equipped mobile phones for the production of short personal video clips. But specific capabilities of modern phones—especially the availability of rich context data—open up new approaches to traditional video management problems, such as the notorious lack of annotated metadata for personal video content. In this chapter, we present MobiCon, a mobile, context-aware personal video production and sharing tool. MobiCon allows users to capture video clips with their camera phones, to semi-automatically create MPEG-7-conformant annotations by exploiting available context data at capture time, to upload both clips and annotations to the users’ video collections, and to share these clips with friends. Thereby, MobiCon enables mobile users to effortlessly create richly annotated home video clips with their camera phones, paving the way to a more effective organization of their personal video collections.
