We describe a method to automatically extract important video objects for object-based indexing. Most of the existing salient object detection approaches detect visually conspicuous structures in images, while our method aims to find regions that may be important for indexing in a video database system. Our method works on a shot basis. We first segment each frame to obtain homogeneous regions in terms of color and texture. Then, we extract a set of regional and inter-regional color, shape, texture and motion features for all regions, which are classified as being important or not using SVMs trained on a few hundreds of example regions. Finally, each important region is tracked within each shot for trajectory generation and consistency check. Experimental results from news video sequences show that the proposed approach is effective. © 2008 IEEE.

Automatic detection of salient objects and spatial relations in videos for a video database system Sevilmiş, T.; Baştan, M.; Güdükbay, U.; Ulusoy, Ö. (Elsevier BV, 2008-10)Multimedia databases have gained popularity due to rapidly growing quantities of multimedia data and the need to perform efficient indexing, retrieval and analysis of this data. One downside of multimedia databases is the ...
Toklu, C.; Tekalp, A.M.; Erdem, A.T. (1997)In this paper, we describe a method for temporal tracking of video objects in video clips. We employ a 2D triangular mesh to represent each video object, which allows us to describe the motion of the object by the displacements ...
