Intelligent abstraction and summarization of video programs containing sports events is a very active field of research. This paper describes the development of a system that enables the users of wireless handheld PDA devices to receive video clips of the goals scored in a soccer match just minutes after they actually happened. The service provider performs the extraction and processing of the video clips and, using wireless and Internet protocols, delivers the data to the user.
