Abstract: Content-based audio segmentation plays an important role in multimedia applications. Many conventional segmentation algorithms are based on small-scale classification and always result in a high false alarm rate. Our experimental results show that large-scale audio can be more easily classified than small ones, and this trend is irrespective of classifiers. According to this fact, we present a novel framework for audio segmentation to reduce the false segmentations. First, a rough segmentation step based on large-scale classification is taken to ensure the integrality of the content of segments. Then a subtle segmentation step based on small-scale classification is taken to further locate the segmentation points from the boundary areas computed by the rough segmentation step. Both theoretical analysis and experimental results show that nearly 3/4 false segmentation points can be reduced comparing to the conventional audio segmentation method based on small-scale audio classification, while preserving a low missing rate, when infrequently type-changed audio streams are dealt. So it can be concluded that it is very suitable for the real tasks such as music broadcast segmentation or music video analysis.
