Abstract
This paper presents an object detection framework applied to cinematographic post-processing of video sequences. Post-processing is done after production and before editing. At the beginning of each shot of a video, a slate (also called clapperboard) is shown. The slate contains notably an electronic audio timecode that is necessary for audio-visual synchronization. This paper presents an object detection framework to detect slates in video sequences for automatic indexing and post-processing. It is based on five steps. The first two steps aim to reduce drastically the video data to be analyzed. They ensure high recall rate but have low precision. The first step detects images at the beginning of a shot possibly showing up a slate while the second step searches in these images for candidates regions with color distribution similar to slates. The objective is to not miss any slate while eliminating long parts of video without slate appearance. The third and fourth steps are statistical classification and pattern matching to detected and precisely locate slates in candidate regions. These steps ensure high recall rate and high precision. The objective is to detect slates with very little false alarms to minimize interactive corrections. In a last step, electronic timecodes are read from slates to automize audio-visual synchronization. The presented slate detector has a recall rate of 89% and a precision of 97,5%. By temporal integration, much more than 89% of shots in dailies are detected. By timecode coherence analysis, the precision can be raised too. Issues for future work are to accelerate the system to be faster than real-time and to extend the framework for several slate types.
