ABSTRACT In this paper we describe methods for video summarization in the context of the TRECVID 2008 BBC Rushes Summa- rization task. Color, motion, and audio features are used to segment, lter, and cluster the video. We experiment with varying the segment similarity measure to improve the joint clustering of segments with and without camera mo- tion. Compared to our previous eort for TRECVID 2007 we have reduced the complexity of the summarization pro- cess as well as the visual complexity of the summaries them- selves. We nd our objective (inclusion) performance to be competitive with systems exhibiting similar subjective per- formance.

    ABSTRACT: This paper introduces the Real-Time Interactive Video Summaries Player -RISPlayer-, an application for the real-time generation and visualization of video summaries that allows the user to generate and watch video summaries on the fly. Therefore, the player provides the possibility of interactively controlling the summary generation parameters and facilitates the creation of personalized summaries. The application makes use of previously developed technologies for progressive and efficient video summary generation and it is able to self adapt to systems with varying computational resources assuring uninterrupted summary generation and visualization.

    ABSTRACT: The amount of video content available nowadays makes video abstraction techniques a necessary tool to ease the access to the already huge and ever growing video databases. Nevertheless, many of the existing video abstraction approaches have high computational requirements, complicating the integration and exploitation of current technologies in real environments. This paper presents a novel method for news bulletin abstraction which combines on-line story segmentation, on-line video skimming and layout composition techniques. The developed algorithm provides an efficient, automatic and on-line news abstraction method which takes advantage of the specific characteristics of news bulletins for obtaining representative news abstracts.
