Summarizing and Searching Video

This poster describes algorithms and a prototype developed to help analysts process information from video streams.

Software Engineering Institute


The volume of aerial surveillance video is outpacing the current, manual monitoring capabilities. DoD analysts need capabilities that reduce workload by identifying, summarizing, and creating alerts about critical events and patterns. In this work the SEI is developing algorithms for video summarization and a prototype architected to exploit new algorithms.
