An approach to summarize video data in compressed domain
The requirements to represent digital video and images efficiently and feasibly have collected great efforts on research, development and standardization over past 20 years. These efforts targeted a vast area of applications such as video on demand, digital TV/HDTV broadcasting, multimedia video databases, surveillance applications etc. Moreover, the applications demand more efficient collections of algorithms to enable lower bit rate levels, with acceptable quality depending on application requirements. In our time, most of the video content either stored, transmitted is in compressed form. The increase in the amount of video data that is being shared attracted interest of researchers on the interrelated problems of video summarization, indexing and abstraction. In this study, the scene cut detection in emerging ISO/ITU H264/AVC coded bit stream is realized by extracting spatio-temporal prediction information directly in the compressed domain. The syntax and semantics, parsing and decoding processes of ISO/ITU H264/AVC bit-stream is analyzed to detect scene information. Various video test data is constructed using Joint Video Team.s test model JM encoder, and implementations are made on JM decoder. The output of the study is the scene information to address video summarization, skimming, indexing applications that use the new generation ISO/ITU H264/AVC video.
