Digital video is rapidly becoming a communication medium for education, entertainment, and a variety of multimedia applications. With the size of the video collections growing to thousnads of hours, efficient searching, browsing, and managing video information have become of increasing importance. In this paper, we propose a novel hierarchical shot clustering method for video summarization which can efficiently generate a set of representative shots and provide a quick and efficient access to a large volume of video content. The proposed method is based on the compatibility measure that can represent correlations among shots in a video sequence. Experimental results on real life video sequences show that the resulting summary can retain the essential content of the original video.
