Coherent segmentation of video into syntactic regions
Smeaton, Alan F.; Adamek, Tomasz; Le Borgne, Hervé; Smyth, Oliver; O'Connor, Noel E.; de Burca, Seán
In this paper we report on our work in realising an approach to video shot matching which involves automatically segmenting video into abstract intertwinded shapes in such a way that there is temporal coherency. These shapes representing approximations of objects and background regions can then be matched giving fine-grained shot-shot matching. The main contributions of the paper are firstly the extension of our segmentation algorithm for still images to spatial segmentation in video, and secondly the introduction a measurement of temporal coherency of the spatial segmentation. This latter allows us to quantitatively demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach on real video data.
