A new video similarity measurement for sports video classification

Prisana Mutchima and Parinya Sanguansat

Abstract

          A key issue of video similarity measure is that most video data are huge files, resulting in time-consuming data processing. Therefore, reducing the dimensionality of the data becomes an essential. But data-dependent dimensionality reduction methods are not efficient. Furthermore, video data usually consists of a large number of frames which varies between different videos, making it difficult to compare their similarity. Therefore, this paper proposes a new framework to reduce the dimensionality of video data by Random Projection (RP) technique and fix dimension by distance space technique. In addition, Compressive Classification (CC) technique will be applied to classify videos. This technique works with a dimensionality reduction method that is data independent. Initially, all training videos frames are extracted by a color histogram based method. Next, all videos features are projected onto a low-dimensional subspace using a random projection. Then a clustering technique is performed to provide the centroids of each cluster, called reference vectors. These vectors are used as a set of basis to create new space, called distance space. For any sequence in distance space, the new feature is represented by the frequencies of similar frames compared with each reference vector. Finally, videos will be classified by the compressive classifier. Empirical evaluations of the results show that the proposed framework significantly outperforms other approaches in video classification.
