Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach to detecting and classifying a trademark logo in frames of a sport video. In view of the fact that we attempt to detect and recognize a logo in a natural scene, the algorithm developed in this paper differs from traditional techniques for logo detection and classification that are applicable either to well-structured general text documents (e.g. invoices, memos, bank cheques) or to specialized trademark logo databases, where logos appear isolated on a clear background and where their detection and classification is not disturbed by the surrounding visual detail. Although the development of our algorithm is still in its starting phase, experimental results performed so far on a set of soccer TV broadcasts are very encouraging.
