Graphical Abstract:


Background: The massive database of videos is growing day by day in this era. Analyzing such huge data is always a time-consuming process. The effective use of video content requires a user-friendly access to information. This leads to the evolution of the research area known as video summarization. The effective techniques of video summarization, the videos have let to analyze the content of large volumes of digital video sequences in various categories, such as surveillance, documentaries, movies, sports, lectures, and news. In video summarization, the automatic selection of necessary and informative section from videos using accurate algorithms is essential. The keyframe extraction in video summarization is intended to suffice comprehensive analysis of video by eliminating replications and extraction of keyframes from the video.

Methods: Recent keyframe extraction techniques like clustering, shot, visual content based keyframe extraction methods are discussed for effective keyframe extraction.

Results: First an introduction of various techniques for keyframe extraction pursued by the state-ofthe- art review on their properties. Although we have outlined some ideas for effective evaluation of video keyframes, the analytical evaluation of various keyframe extraction techniques is discussed and the approaches based on the methods, dataset and the results are compared.

Conclusion: In the recent years, the use of digital video data has been increasing significantly due to the extensive use of multimedia applications in the areas of education, entertainment, business. So the video has received an incredible attention and research interest in video processing. The use of keyframe extraction has been given incredible attention, in this work, we have carried out a comprehensive survey and review of the research in keyframe extraction techniques. We believe the review paper will provide an update for the reader regarding the progress of keyframe extraction by different keyframe extraction techniques.

Keywords: Keyframe, video summarization, clustering based keyframe extraction, shot based keyframe extraction, visual content based keyframe extraction, motion-based keyframe extraction.
