A framework for flexible summarization of racquet sports video using multiple modalities

While most existing sports video research focuses on detecting event from soccer and baseball etc., little work has been contributed to flexible content summarization on racquet sports video, e.g. tennis, table tennis etc. By taking advantages of the periodicity of video shot content and audio keywords in the racquet sports video, we propose a novel flexible video content summarization framework. Our approach combines the structure event detection method with the highlight ranking algorithm. Firstly, unsupervised shot clustering and supervised audio classification are performed to obtain the visual and audio mid-level patterns respectively. Then, a temporal voting scheme for structure event detection is proposed by utilizing the correspondence between audio and video content. Finally, by using the affective features extracted from the detected events, a linear highlight model is adopted to rank the detected events in terms of their exciting degrees. Experimental results show that the proposed approach is effective. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Computer Vision and Image Understanding Elsevier
