Wavelet-based holistic sequence descriptor for generating video summaries

We propose a video representation, the Video Scene Trajectory, computed from localised temporal-change in order to capture the holistic action content in a sequence. Such a representation is critical for action based genres such as surveillance. We show that an analysis of the trajectory shape is able to produce a temporal segmentation. Furthermore, we build an action based video summary using the Top Discriminative Active Pixels in the segments. Experiments are presented on real-world outdoor surveillance scenes.
