Abstract or Description
This paper is concerned with the topic of personalized news assembly at the set-top box, based on augmented video. This is video complemented with additional information that is somehow relevant to the semantic video content. We touch upon the technique that is used for video augmentation, which is video subject detection followed by information searches on the subject. A focus of this paper is on subject detection implemented using traditional text analysis tools; video segmentation is based on these results and visual processing. We describe the architecture of such a system and the benefits to the consumer. Further we discuss a preliminary system that shows the viability of the concept.
