This paper discusses a method for identifying clickable objects/regions in still and moving images when they are being captured. A number of methods and languages have recently been proposed for adding point-and-click interactivity to objects in moving pictures as well as still images. When these pictures are displayed in Internet environments or broadcast on digital TV channels, users can follow links specified by URLs (e.g., for buying items online or getting detailed information about a particular item) by clicking on these objects. However, it is not easy to specify clickable areas of objects in a video because their position is liable to change from one frame to the next To cope with this problem, our method allows content creators to capture moving (and still) images with information related to objects that appear in these images including the coordinates of the clickable areas of these objects in the captured images. This is achieved by capturing the images at various infrared wavelengths simultaneously. This is also applicable to multi-target motion capture.
