TRECVID BBC Rushes Summarization Workshop at ACM Multimedia'08,
Vancouver, BC, Canada, 31 October, 2008.
In this paper, we present the first participation of a consortium
of French laboratories, IRIM, to the TRECVID 2008 BBC Rushes
Summarization task. Our approach resorts to video skimming.
We propose two methods to reduce redundancy, as rushes include
several takes of scenes. We also take into account low and
mid-level semantic features in an ad-hoc fusion method in order
to retain only significant content.
