DETECT - Real Time Detection of Motion Picture Content in Live Broadcasts
The principle goal of the DETECT project was to implement a general platform for real time detection of semantic blocks and regions within digital video streams. These detected regions are then subject to further analysis and processing. The project focused on the applications problem of detecting and delimiting predefined static and dynamic objects. This issue has currently a very large demand for both cultural and economic reasons. DETECT was an industrial driven project, although its nature is R&D. The project resulted in a prototype, which can be turned into a product after the project. For this reason the main modules were implemented as sample applications (ProcessingUnits) for the categories which are of high commercial interest (e.g.: identification of race-cars and soccer-players).
