Silvia Pfeiffer and Stephan Fischer and Wolfgang Effelsberg “Automatic Audio Content Analysis”, Proceedings of the ACM Multimedia Conference 1996 November 1996 Boston, USA pp. 21-30.
This paper describes the theoretic framework and applications of automatic audio content analysis. After explaining the basic properties of audio analysis, we present a toolbox being the basis for the development of audio analysis algorithms. We also describe new applications which can be developed using the toolset, among them music indexing and retrieval as well as violence detection in the sound track of videos.
