To manage the massive growth of sport videos, we need to summarize the contents into a more compact and interesting representation. Unlike previous work which summarized either highlights or play scenes, we propose a unified summarization scheme which integrates both highlights and play-break scenes. For automation of the process, combination of audio and visual features provides more accurate detection. We will present fast detection algorithms of whistle and excitement to take advantage of the fact that audio features are computationally cheaper than visual features. However, due to the amount of noises in sport audio, fast text-display detection will be used for verification of the detected highlights. The performance of these algorithms has been tested against one hour of soccer and swimming videos.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
