Paper Abstract

Indexing is an important aspect of video database management. Video indexing involves the analysis of video sequences, which is a computationally intensive process. However, effective management of digital video requires robust indexing techniques. The main purpose of our proposed video segmentation is twofold. Firstly, we develop an algorithm that identifies camera shot boundary. The approach is based on the use of combination of color histograms and block-based technique. Next, each temporal segment is represented by a color reference frame which specifies the shot similarities and which is used in the constitution of scenes. Experimental results using a variety of videos selected in the corpus of the French Audiovisual National Institute are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of performing shot detection, the content characterization of shots and the scene constitution.
