Abstract: This paper proposes the use of a new symmetry property based on proximity of the median moments in the wavelet domain. The method divides a given frame into 16 equally sized blocks to classify the true text frame. The average of high frequency subbands of a block is used for computing median moments to brighten the text pixel in a block of video frame. Then K-means clustering with K=2 is applied on the median moments of the block to classify it as a probable text block. For classified blocks, average wavelet median moments are computed for a sliding window. We introduce Max-Min cluster to classify the probable text pixel in each probable text block. The four quadrants are formed from the centroid of the probable text pixels. The new concept called symmetry is introduced to identify the true text block based on proximity between probable text pixels in each quadrant. If the frame produces at least one true text block, it is considered as a text frame otherwise a non-text frame. The method is tested on three datasets to evaluate the robustness of the method in classification of text frames in terms of recall and precision. © 2010 IEEE.
