Abstract For news video images, caption recognizing is a useful and important step for content understanding. Caption locating is usually the first step of caption recognizing and this paper proposes a simple but effective caption locating algorithm called maximum feature score region (MFSR) based method, which mainly consists of two stages: In the first stage, up/down boundaries are attained by turning to edge map projection. Then, maximum feature score region is defined and left/right boundaries are achieved by utilizing MFSR. Experiments show that the proposed MFSR based method has superior and robust performance on news video images of different types.
