MPEG-7 Compliant Shot Detection in Sport Videos

Abstract: In this paper we propose a system for automatic detection of shots in sport videos. Our work covers two main aspects: the first is robust shot detection in presence of fast object motion and camera operations. To this aim we propose a new algorithm, unique for both cuts and linear transitions detection, which only needs the tuning of two parameters. An extended comparison with four transition detection algorithms, representing the state of the art in literature, is reported. Examples with formula 1, basket, soccer and cycling videos are analyzed. The second aspect is an in depth discussion on the annotation of shots and transitions with the MPEG-7 standard.
