Free-Shaped Video Collage
Abstract. With the explosive growth of multimedia data, video presentation has become an important technology for fast browsing of video content. In this paper, we present a novel video presentation technique called “Free-Shaped Video Collage” (FS-Collage), which is motivated from and built upon our previous work on Video Collage [3]. Video Collage is a kind of static summary which selects the most representative regions-of-interest (ROI) from video and seamlessly arranges them on a synthesized image. Unlike Video Collage in which both the shapes of ROI and final collage are fixed as rectangle, we support arbitrary shapes of ROI and a set of collage templates in FS-Collage. Furthermore, we design three ROI arrangement schemes (i.e., book, diagonal, and spiral) for satisfying different video genres. We formulate the generation of FSCollage as an energy minimization problem and solve the problem by designing a random sampling process. The experiment results show that our FS-Collag...
