Object-based video data representations enable unprecedented functionalities of content access and manipulation. In this paper, we present an integrated approach using region-based analysis for semantic video object segmentation and retrieval. We first present an active system which combines low level region segmentation with user inputs for defining and tracking semantic video objects. The proposed technique is novel in using an integrated feature fusion framework for tracking and segmentation at both region and object levels. Experimental results and extensive performance evaluation show excellent results compared to existing systems. Building upon the segmentation framework, we then present a unique region-based query system for semantic video object. The model facilitates powerful object search, such as spatio-temporal similarity searching at multiple levels. Index Terms - object segmentation, region analysis, content-based retrieval, video object model, spatio-temporal structure
