In order to represent large video collections in the form of key-frame summary on small screen devices, this paper exploits methodology of the visual attention modelling and rapid serial visual presentation. This approach results in an intuitive layout of efficiently generated video summaries. A robust real-time algorithm for key-frame extraction is presented. The system ranks importance of key-frame regions in the final layout by exploiting visual attention modelling. A final layout is created using an optimisation algorithm based on dynamic programming. Algorithm efficiency and robustness are demonstrated by comparing the results with the manually labelled ground truth.
