Automatic Programme Video Summarisation System

Creating Short Videos for Quick and Easy Viewing


Broadcasters are boosting short videos for online distribution in order to showcase TV programmes. We have developed an AI-based video summarisation system that can support making short video footage from the programme video.

Outline of automatic programme video summarisation process


  • Image analysis trained by AI is used to recognise the composition and camera motion of important scenes.
  • Users can easily modify the automatically generated summary video.
  • An automatic summarisation system for news programmes can be put into practical use with this technology.

Future plans

We will expand the number of broadcast stations using this system. We will also improve the AI by introducing new technology and learning more training data.
