Abstract: Recently, automatic sports video analysis has received increasing attention, because sport video appeals to large audiences. The processing of sports video generates various valuable applications such as highlighting, summarization, indexing/retrieval, athlete’s training and entertainment. This talk introduces the techniques of broadcast sport video content analysis. First of all, I will describe the characteristics of broadcast sport videos and give an introduction to analysis rules for sport video contents. Next, I will introduce our proposed broadcast sport analysis systems including event detection of baseball videos and player detection and tracking for tennis videos. Finally, demonstration of the two systems will be given.
