Abstract: This paper proposes an algorithm for detecting artificial text in video frames using edge information. First, an edge map is created using the Canny edge detector. Then, morphological dilation and opening are used in order to connect the vertical edges and eliminate false alarms. Bounding boxes are determined for every non-zero valued connected component, consisting the initial candidate text areas. Finally, an edge projection analysis is applied, refining the result and splitting text areas in text lines. The whole algorithm is applied in different resolutions to ensure text detection with size variability. Experimental results prove that the method is highly effective and efficient for artificial text detection.
