Still Image Segmentation Tools For Object-Based Multimedia Applications

  title={Still Image Segmentation Tools For Object-Based Multimedia Applications},
  author={Vasileios Mezaris and Yiannis Kompatsiaris and Michael G. Strintzis},
In this paper, a novel color image segmentation algorithm and a novel approach to large-format image segmentation are presented, both focused on usage for image segmentation in content-based multimedia applications. The novel color image segmentation algorithm uses the Discrete Wavelet Frames decomposition to extract texture features and performs pixel classification using a novel initial clustering procedure and applying a novel variant of the K-Means-with-connectivity-constraint algorithm in… CONTINUE READING
