Title: METHOD OF GENERATING A VIDEO SUMMARY
Abstract:
A method of generating a video summary of a content signal including at least a video sequence (18) includes classifying segments of the video sequence (18) into one of at least a first and a second class based on an analysis of properties of respective parts of the content signal and at least a first set of criteria for identifying segments (19-21) of the first class. A sequence (37) of images is formed by concatenating sub-sequences (38-40) of images, each sub-sequence (38-40) based at least partly on a respective segment (19-21) of the first class, such that in at least one of the sub-sequences (38-40) of images, moving images based on the respective segment (19-21) of the first class are displayed in a window of a first type. A representation of a segment (25-27) of the second class is caused to be displayed with at least some images of the sequence (37) of images in a window (41,42) of a different type.
