Video anomaly detection plays a critical role for intelligent video surveillance. We present an abnormal video event detection system that considers both spatial and temporal contexts. To characterize the video, we first perform the spatiotemporal video segmentation and then propose a new regionbased descriptor called “Motion Context”, to describe both motion and appearance information of the spatio-temporal segment. For anomaly measurements, we formulate the abnormal event detection as a matching problem, which is more robust than statistic model based methods, especially when the training dataset is of limited size. For each testing spatio-temporal segment, we search for its best match in the training dataset, and determine how normal it is using a dynamic threshold. To speed up the search process, compact random projections are also adopted. Experiments on the benchmark dataset and comparisons with the state-of-the-art methods validate the advantages of our algorithm.
