A novel audiovisual feature-based scheme is proposed for the automatic summarization of sports-video content that is based on the development of robust extractors for a set of critical features, which are shown to reliably indicate their locations.


Analysis And Presentation Of Soccer Highlights From Digital Video
Techniques to automatically detect and extract the soccer highlights by analyzing the image contents, and to present these shots of action by the panoramic reconstruction of selected events are presented.
Real-time goal-mouth detection in MPEG soccer video
In real-time detection of goal-mouth appearances in MPEG soccer video, the system constrains the Hough Transform-based line-mark detection to only the dominant green regions typically seen in soccer video.
Semantic Annotation of Sports Videos
This work decomposes each shot into its visual and graphic content elements and, by combining several different low-level visual primitives, captures the semantic content at a higher level of significance.

This paper investigates the use of video content analysis and feature extraction and clustering techniques for further video semantic classifications and a supervised rule based video classification system is proposed that can be applied to applications such as on-line video indexing, filtering and video summaries, etc.
Automatic soccer video analysis and summarization
A fully automatic and computationally efficient framework for analysis and summarization of soccer videos using cinematic and object-based features, which includes some novel low-level soccer video processing algorithms, as well as some higher-level algorithms for goal detection, referee detection, and penalty-box detection.
Automatic detection of 'Goal' segments in basketball videos
This paper presents a set of models for interesting sporting events-goal segments-that have been implemented as part of an information retrieval system based on a number of automatic techniques for feature detection used in combination with heuristic rules determined through manual observations of sports footage.
Event detection and summarization in American football broadcast video
A framework for event detection and summary generation in football broadcast video is proposed, which proposes both deterministic and probabilistic approaches to the detection of the plays and an audio-based hierarchical summarization method.
A mid-level representation framework for semantic sports video analysis
A generic mid-level representation framework is introduced between the low-level audio-visual processing and high-level semantic analysis and can be used for event detection, highlight extraction, summarization and personalization of many types of sports video.
Robust goal-mouth detection for virtual content insertion
