In the past, several automatic video summarization systems had been proposed to generate video summary. However, a generic video summary that is generated based only on audio, visual and textual saliencies will not satisfy every user. This paper proposes a novel system for generating semantically meaningful personalized video summaries, which are tailored(More)
In this letter, a novel salient region detection approach is proposed. Firstly, color contrast cue and color distribution cue are computed by exploiting patch level and region level image abstractions in a unified way, where these two cues are fused to compute an initial saliency map. A simple and computationally efficient adaptive saliency refinement(More)
Although in the past, several automatic video summarization systems had been proposed to generate video summary, a generic summary based only on low-level features will not satisfy every user. As users' needs or preferences for the summary vastly differ for the same video, a unique personalized and customized video summarization system becomes an urgent(More)
Video summarization aims at producing a compact version of a full-length video while preserving the significant content of the original video. Movie summarization condenses a full-length movie into a summary that still retains the most significant and interesting content of the original movie. In the past, several movie summarization systems have been(More)
This paper presents a new methodology for image description to extract discriminative features from images, that are robust and invariant to illumination changes. The proposed approach describes the image features using multisupport interest regions. The features from multisupport regions are extracted after transforming each interest region into log polar(More)
Detecting salient objects from images and videos has many useful applications in computer vision. In this paper, a novel spatiotemporal salient region detection approach is proposed. The proposed approach computes spatiotemporal saliency by estimating spatial and temporal saliencies separately. The spatial saliency is computed estimating of color contrast(More)
