Publication Type: 
Book Chapter
This chapter describes a real-time system for event detection in sports broadcasts. The approach presented is applicable to a wide range of field sports. Using two independent event detection approaches that work simultaneously, the system is capable of accurately detecting scores, near misses, and other exciting parts of a game that do not result in a score. The results obtained across a diverse dataset of different field sports are promising, demonstrating over 90 % accuracy for a feature-based event detector and 100 % accuracy for a scoreboard-based detector detecting only scores.
