Scientists develop way to condense shows down so viewers don’t have to sit through the boring bits
- Skimo technology condenses TV shows or entire series
- The summarisation provides all the key moment of a show
- System analyses the ‘language’ or ‘grammar’ of the footage
It’s the ultimate ‘cheat’ for those who don’t want to feel left out when everyone’s talking about the latest box sets… but also don’t want to spend time actually watching them.
Scientists have devised a way of condensing an entire TV show or film into just two or three minutes, providing all the key moments without the need to sit through the slow parts in between.
The ‘video summarisation’, which takes just a minute to be crunched from a programme, can then be sent to your smartphone or iPad.
