Video processing and segmentation are important stages for multimedia data mining, especially with the advance and diversity of video data available. The aim of this chapter is to introduce researchers, especially new ones, to the “video representation, processing, and segmentation techniques”. This includes an easy and smooth introduction, followed by principles of video structure and representation, and then a state-of-the-art of the segmentation techniques focusing on the shot-detection. Performance evaluation and common issues are also discussed before concluding the chapter.

Basics Of Mathematical Morphology

Mathematical Morphology is a theory introduced about 50 years ago by Georges Matheron and Jean Serra. Since then, it has been a growing and very active field of research, with its regular International Symposium on Mathematical Morphology (ISMM) taking place every two years and a half, and several recent special issues of journals (Ronse, 2005; Ronse, Najman, & Decencière, 2007).
