Shot Boundary Detection Using Frame Transition Parameters and Edge Strength Scatter
We have presented a unified model for various types of video shot transitions. Based on that model, we adhere to frame estimation scheme using previous and next frames. The frame parameters accompanied by a scatter measure of edge strength and average intensity constitute the feature vector of a frame. Finally, the frames are classified as no change (within shot frame), abrupt change or gradual change frames using a multilayer perceptron network. The scheme is free from the problems of selecting thresholds and/or window size as used by various schemes. Moreover, the handling of both, abrupt and gradual transitions along with non-transition frames under a single and uniform framework is the unique feature of the work.
