This paper presents a highlight extraction scheme for sports videos. The approach makes use of the transition logos inserted preceding and following the slow motion replays by the broadcaster, which demonstrate highlights of the game. First, the features of a MPEG compressed video are retrieved for subsequent processing. After the shot boundary detection procedure, the processing units are formed and the units with fast moving scenes are then selected. Finally, the detection of overlaying objects is performed to signal the appearance of a transition logo. Experimental results show the feasibility of this promising method for sports videos highlight extraction.
