Sample-Based Human Movement Detection for Interactive Videos Applied to Performing Arts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


In the performing arts context, video analysis plays a significant role in analyzing the artists’ movement in educational and professional artistic environments. However, current research lacks user-centered systems for artists to directly engage with movement detection in their respective practice recordings. Our framework presents an annotation tool capable of automatically analyzing human poses of individual examples in real-time and presenting motion data in the form of simple reports.

At the core of this system, augmenting multimedia content by manually adding different types of annotations to the intended video segment is possible. Therefore, we developed novel features that combine automatic intelligent movement analysis with manual annotation capabilities for a more rewarding and efficient user experience. We demonstrate how pose estimation techniques can be employed to set up customized sets of human poses that can be automatically identified in videos. In addition, this paper discusses the results obtained from two system evaluation phases, where we report our findings based on expert feedback.
