procedures for browsing, filtering, sorting or retrieving pictorial
content require accurate content characterization. Methods for
automatically classifying a video streams into categories are
the first method motion information is extracted from a video
sequence and used to train Hidden Markov Models to classify sports
and news video sequences and different types of movie trailers.
second method uses local activity estimation and shot length values
to classify movie trailers according to their activity/violence
characteristics with a simple 2-D classifier.
and directions for future research are discussed.
