Recording medical surgery operations is important for sharing the various operating techniques. In most operating rooms, fixed surgery cameras are already installed, but it is almost impossible to capture the surgical field because of occlusion by the surgeon's head and body. In order to capture the surgical field in real surgery operations, we proposed the installation of multiple cameras in a surgical lighting system, so that at least one camera can capture the target surgical field even when the surgeon's head and body occlude other cameras. In this paper, we present a method for automatic viewpoint selection from multi-view surgical videos, so that the surgical field can always be recorded in the output video. We employ a method for learning-based object detection from videos for automatic evaluation of the surgical field area from multiple input videos. By selecting the viewpoint with the largest area of the surgical field, we can virtually reduce the area of the surgeon's head and hands. In general, frequent camera switching degrades the video quality of view (QoV). Therefore, we apply the Dijkstra method widely used in the shortest path problem as a combinatorial optimization method for this problem. Our camera scheduling method is that the camera switching is not performed for a certain period of time, and the surgical field observed in the entire video is maximized.
