Abstract

Metadata extraction is one of the first tasks to be performed for automatic Digital Library annotation, and in particular shot detection has been widely explored in literature. While a lot of methods have been proposed for the detection of abrupt cuts, only a small number of them has explicitly addressed the problem of gradual transitions. In this paper we propose an algorithm that exploits a precise model of linear transition. Experimental results on Formula 1 car races videos show the robustness of this method. These test videos are characterized by extreme situations such as fast camera and objects motion and very different kinds of shots. The algorithm is able to estimate the exact length of the transition and an error score is also given as a fitness measure to the linear model, to discriminate true transitions from false detections. The final shot segmentation is delivered as an MPEG7 compliant output.
