Automatic genre identification for content-based video categorization
Truong, Ba Tu, Venkatesh, Svetha and Dorai, Chitra 2000, Automatic genre identification for content-based video categorization, in ICPR 2000 : Proceedings of the International Conference on Pattern Recognition, IEEE, Washington, D. C., pp. 230-233, doi: 10.1109/ICPR.2000.902901.
This paper presents a set of computational features originating from our study of editing effects, motion, and color used in videos, for the task of automatic video categorization. These features besides representing human understanding of typical attributes of different video genres, are also inspired by the techniques and rules used by many directors to endow specific characteristics to a genre-program which lead to certain emotional impact on viewers. We propose new features whilst also employing traditionally used ones for classification. This research, goes beyond the existing work with a systematic analysis of trends exhibited by each of our features in genres such as cartoons, commercials, music, news, and sports, and it enables an understanding of the similarities, dissimilarities, and also likely confusion between genres. Classification results from our experiments on several hours of video establish the usefulness of this feature set. We also explore the issue of video clip duration required to achieve reliable genre identification and demonstrate its impact on classification accuracy.
