We propose a method that analyzes the structure of a large volume of general broadcast video data by the appearance patterns of near-duplicate video segments. We define six classification rules based on the appearance patterns of near-duplicate video segments according to their roles, and evaluated them over more than 1,000 hours of actual broadcast video data.

    ABSTRACT: News videos constitute an important source of information for tracking and documenting important events. In these videos, news stories are often accompanied by short video shots that tend to be repeated during the course of the event. Automatic detection of such repetitions is essential for creating auto-documentaries, for alleviating the limitation of traditional textual topic detection methods. In this paper, we propose novel methods for detecting and tracking the evolution of news over time. The proposed method exploits both visual cues and textual information to summarize evolving news stories. Experiments are carried on the TREC-VID data set consisting of 120 hours of news videos from two different channels.

    ABSTRACT: Detection and removal of commercials plays an important role when searching for important broadcast news video material. Two novel approaches are proposed based on two distinctive characteristics of commercials, namely, repetitive use of commercials over time and distinctive color and audio features. Furthermore, proposed strategies for combining the results of the two methods yield even better performance. Experiments show over 90% recall and precision on a test set of 5 hours of ABC and CNN broadcast news data
