In this paper, we proposed a scheme for TV news segmentation via exploring the efficient visual features. The proposed scheme can be divided into three parts, such as shot change detection based on skin color; probable anchorperson shot detection and anchorperson detection. According to experimental results, our proposed method can efficiently decompose TV news into anchorperson shots and report shots. Compared to the traditional face detection methods, the proposed method can robustly exclude the non-anchorperson shots in report shots such as the interview scenes. Experimental results are given to demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of the proposed technique.
