Create software to detect live slow motion during TV programs, primarily sports replays. The software should be able to annotate, and segment the capture video into the separate replays. We have a few academic papers that explain preciously how we'd like to do this. We will supply all the UI wireframes and visual art. Our coders need to be strong with algorithms, computer vision, and Web 2.0 applications. This software will do the following: -acts like Slingbox and allows users to connect to the our device via the web to simply watch a game. -analyses sports games and automatically annotates, saves, and uploads the highlight events, creating an ongoing “game summary.?? a) based on slow motion detection and other means for professional TV broadcasts b) based on other ways for detecting highlights in amateur videos (audio excitement level, zoom change, etc) c) creates a transcript of closed captions d) guesses title of a highlight e) scraps internet for game information and current score to add to annotation of replay f) saves keywords for easier search later (example: “touchdown??, “UCLA??, “USC?? g) converts high definition replays to flv and uploads the video to website with keywords and game summary. h) creates game summary along a timeline with thumbnails and high definition highlight replays This software also uploads and interacts with a website, (which we have lots of code for already) which has the following functions: -Professional users can watch TV live from their box which is running your software. -other users can search for replays via search term, team, sport, etc. -web users see the same timeline, so if they found a highlight, it shows them which game they saw it in. -other web features
