Abstract: A system is described for summarizing head-mounted or hand-carried "always-on" video. The example used is a tourist walking around a historic city with friends and family. The summary consists of a mixture of stills, panoramas and video clips. The system identifies both the scenes to appear in the summary and the media type used to represent them. As there are few shot boundaries in this class of video, the decisions are based on the system's classification of the user's behaviour demonstrated by the motion of the camera, and motion in the scene.
