Video summarization is a useful tool which allows a user to grasp rapidly the essence of a video. In the development of this research topic we propose a new method based on different individual content segmentation and selection tools in a collaborative system. The main innovation of this work is to merge results from different approaches, so as to benefit from their respective qualities. Our system is organized in two phases: first segmentation of the video, second identification of relevant and redundant segments. The final list of selected segments is used to concatenate the video segments and build the final summary. In order to assess the effectiveness of this organization, we evaluate our system with a method based on the TRECVID 2007 BBC rushes summarization evaluation pilot and compare our performance with existing systems.
