Abstract

Video story segmentation, i.e., segmentation of video to semantically meaningful units, is an essential technology for advanced video processing, such as video retrieval, summarization, and so on. In this paper, we will introduce a generic video story segmentation method, which has achieved highly accurate segmentation on both broadcast news and non-news variety TV programs. Furthermore, we will probe the problems which need to be solved in order to implement story segmentation to practical applications.
