Title Image and Video Segmentation, Shot Analysis and Key frame extraction, Efficient extraction of standardized features.
Starting date October 2004 (start of Action).
Ending date January 2006.
Coordinator Prof. N. O'Connor (DCU)
The focus of WG2 was the comparison and evaluation of different methods and unification towards a common framework. Testing and evaluation of technology in four main areas were conducted:
- Image and Video Segmentation: extraction of coherent spatio-temporal regions and their low-level features including shape, texture, colour and motion.
- Shot Analysis and Key frame extraction: modality conversion from video segments to images, from which visual features were extracted.
- Efficient extraction of standardized features.
This Working Group successfully concluded its activities on January 2006/October 2005
