We present an integrated framework on personalized sports video customization, which addresses three research issues: semantic video annotation, personalized video retrieval and summarization, and system adaptation. Sports video annotation serves as the foundation of the video customization system. To acquire detailed description of video content, external web text is adopted to align with the related sports video according to their semantic correspondence. Based on the derived semantic annotation, a user-participant multiconstraint 0/1 Knapsack model is designed to model the personalized video customization, which can unify both video retrieval and summarization with different fusion parameters. As a measure to make the system adaptive to the particular user, a social network based system adaptation algorithm is proposed to learn latent user preference implicitly. Both quantitative and qualitative experiments conducted on twelve broadcast basketball and football videos validate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
