Shot Detection Using Modified Dugad Model

Authors: Lenka Krulikovská, Jaroslav Polec


In this paper we present a modification to existed model of threshold for shot cut detection, which is able to adapt itself to the sequence statistics and operate in real time, because it use for calculation only previously evaluated frames. The efficiency of proposed modified adaptive threshold scheme was verified through extensive test experiment with several similarity metrics and achieved results were compared to the results reached by the original model. According to results proposed threshold scheme reached higher accuracy than existed original model.

Keywords: adaptive threshold, Abrupt cut, shot cut detection
