Recently, a huge amount of the video data available in the digital form has given users to allow more ubiquitous access to visual information than ever. To efficiently manage such huge amount of video data, we need such tools as video summarization and search. In this paper, we propose a novel scheme allowing for both scalable hierarchical video summary and efficient retrieval by introducing a notion of fidelity. The notion of fidelity in the tree-structured key frame hierarchy describes how well the key frames at one level are represented by the parent key frame, relative to the other children of the parent. The experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of our scheme.
