Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel method of analyzing video and representing the relationship among characters based on their contexts in the video sequences, namely Character-Net. As a huge amount of video contents is generated even in a single day, the searching and summarizing technologies of the contents have also been issued. Thereby, a number of researches have been proposed related to extracting semantic information of video or scenes. Generally stories of video, such as TV serial or commercial movies, are made progress with characters. Accordingly, the relationship between the characters and their contexts should be identified to summarize video. To deal with these issues, we propose Character-Net supporting the extraction of major characters in video. We first identify characters appeared in a group of video shots and subsequently extract the speaker and listeners in the shots. Finally, the characters are represented by a form of a network with graphs presenting the relationship among them. We present empirical experiments to demonstrate Character-Net and evaluate performance of extracting major characters.
