Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0223891A2] A method for highlighting important developments in a video clip of a sports event, such as a video clip of a soccer match, by inferring the developments from a cue provided from low level features in the video clip. The method detects sequences of frames in the video clip having a certain preselected visual or audible cues. The number of frames in each sequence having the cue is then compared to a predefined threshold number. If the number of frames in a sequence is equal to or greater than the threshold number, an important development is declared in the frames immediately preceding the threshold meeting frame sequence.
