Abstract:


The detection of gradual transitions focuses on two types of
approaches: unified approaches, i.e. one detector for all gradual
transition types, and approaches that use specialized detectors for
each gradual transition type. We present an overview on existing
methods and extend an existing unified approach for the detection
of gradual transitions in historic material. In an experimental
study we evaluate our approach on complex and low quality
historic material as well as on contemporary material from the
TRECVid evaluation. Additionally we investigate different
features, feature combinations and fusion strategies. We observe
that the historic material requires the use of texture features in
contrast to the contemporary material that in most of the cases
requires the use of colour and luminance features.
