The development of Digital Television opens new perspectives in the distribution of audio-visual material to the general public. The immediate advantages of digital broadcast are the improvement in transmission quality and the increase in transmission capacity. But the major change for users will come from the future capacity of the video delivery chain to process this digital information to build new interaction paradigms, such as Interactive Television. In particular, it is expected that one important paradigm will be the construction of customized programs, programs that are specifically designed to fit the needs of each user. This presentation will describe some of the technologies that can be used for this type of processing, for example automatic audio-video analysis and parsing, information filtering algorithms, user profile creation and update, and recommendation systems. Experiments and prototypes that have been developed by the Eurecom Multimedia Communications Department will be presented.
