We describe our studies on summarising surveillance videos using optical flow information. The proposed method incorporates motion analysis into a video skimming scheme in which the playback speed is determined by the detectability of interesting motion behaviours according to prior information. A psycho-visual experiment was conducted to compare human performance and viewing strategy for summarised videos using standard video skimming techniques and a proposed motion-based adaptive summarisation technique.
