This chapter introduces Video Abstraction, which is a short representation of an original video, and widely used in video cataloging, indexing, and retrieving. It provides a general view of video abstraction and presents different methods to produce various video abstracts. Also, it discusses a new approach to obtain a video abstract called video digest that uses the closed-caption information available in most videos. The method is efficient in segmenting long videos and producing various lengths of video abstracts automatically. The authors hope that this chapter not only gives newcomers a general and broad view of video abstraction, but also benefits the experienced researchers and professionals by presenting a comprehensive survey on state- of-the-art video abstraction and video digest methods.
