Illumination Invariant Shot Boundary Detection

  title={Illumination Invariant Shot Boundary Detection},
  author={Laiyun Qing and Weiqiang Wang and Wen Gao},
Illumination variation poses a serious problem in video shot detection. It causes false cuts in many shot detection algorithms. A new illumination invariant measure metric is proposed in this paper. The metric is based on the assumption: the outputs of derivative filters to log-illumination are sparse. Thus the outputs of derivative filters to log-image are mainly caused by the scene itself. If the total output is larger than a threshold, it can be declared as a scene change or a shot boundary…

Following recent work on the statistics of natural images, a prior is used that assumes that illumination images will give rise to sparse filter outputs and this leads to a simple, novel algorithm for recovering reflectance images.

This paper illustrates, through analysis of photographically-acquired, high dynamic range illumination maps, that real-world illumination shares many of the statistical properties of natural images.

Non-iterative Comprehensive Normalisation

A non iterative log comprehensive normalisation procedure that supports accurate colour based object recognition independent of lighting conditions and shows how in this log color space two simple projection operators lead to invariance to geometry and light colour.

Color Constant Color Indexing

Results of tests with the new color-constant-color-indexing algorithm show that it works very well even when the illumination varies spatially in its intensity and color, which circumvents the need for color constancy preprocessing.
