This dataset was created with the purpose of providing a training and evaluation benchmark for TV logo detection in videos. It contains the results from the segmentation and annotation of 2,749 YouTube videos originating from a large number of news TV channels, The videos have been annotated with respect to the TV channel logos they contain -specifically, by the name of the organization to which the logo belongs- and with shot boundary information. Furthermore, a set of logo templates has been extracted from the videos and organized alongside the corresponding channel information.
As we do not own the rights to the videos, the dataset only contains the YouTube video IDs alongside the corresponding annotations. It further contains 503 logo template files and the corresponding metadata information (channel name, wikipedia link). See the README file for details.
This is the second version of the dataset, including various corrections in annotation.
