A vital task in sports video annotation is to detect and segment areas of the playfield. This is an important first step in player or ball tracking and detecting the location of the play on the playfield. In this paper, we present a technique using statistical models, Gaussian mixture models (GMMs) and maximum a posteriori (MAP) adaptation. This involves first creating a generic model of the play-field colour and then using unsupervised MAP adaptation to adapt this model to the colour of the… CONTINUE READING
