Video is an important and challenge media and requires sophisticated indexing schemes for efficient retrieval from visual databases. An important step in video indexing is scene change detection. Recently, several scene change detection algorithms in the pixel and compressed(MPEG-2) domains have been reported in the literature. These algorithms are computationally complex and are not very robust in detecting gradual scene changes. In this paper, we propose an efficient technique for detecting scene changes in the MPEG-2 compressed domain. The proposed algorithm has the advantage of fast scene change detection. In addition, this algorithm has the potential to detect gradual scene changes.
