on a Consumer Electronics Platform Using Face Detection

We present a consumer video browsing system that enables use of multiple alternative summaries in a simple and effective user interface suitable for consumer electronics platforms. We present a news and talk video segmentation and summary generation technique for this platform. We use face detection on consumer video, and use simple face features such as face count, size and x-location to classify video segments. More specifically, we cluster 1-face segments using face sizes and x-locations. We observe that different scenes such as anchorperson, outdoor correspondent, weather report, etc. form separate clusters. We then apply temporal morphological filtering on the label streams to obtain alternative summary streams for smooth summaries and effective browsing through stories. We also apply our technique to talk show video to generate separate summaries of monologue segments and guest interviews
