Shot Classification in Broadcast Soccer Video

Xiaofeng Tong, Qingshan Liu, Hanqing Lu

Abstract

In this paper, we present an effective hierarchical shot classification scheme for broadcast soccer video. We first partition a video into replay and non-replay shots with replay logo detection. Then, non-replay shots are further classified into Long, Medium, Close-up or Out-field types with color and texture features based on a decision tree. We tested the method on real broadcast FIFA soccer videos, and the experimental results demonstrate its effectiveness..
