This paper describes an efficient system for scalable video summarisation that exploits comic-like summaries and multi-scale representations to facilitate interactivity and balance between content coverage and compactness. Due to the layout disturbance induced by the transitions between scales, a new heuristic algorithm is proposed to restrict changes to bounded summary segments. Conducted user evaluations show that the proposed methodology improves usability while keeping the summaries compact and informative.
