Managing Personal Libraries of Broadcast TV Content
This event took place on Wednesday 10 September 2008 at 11:30
This is a general talk about our experiences of developing digital video search technologies since 1999 at the Centre for Digital Video Processing at Dublin City University. No prior knowledge is required.
As the volume of digital video data in existence constantly increases, the resulting vast archives of broadcast video content and user created content are presenting both an opportunity and a requirement for the development of content-based video retrieval systems. In this seminar I will describe experiences from almost ten years of research into managing broadcast TV content, from the early days of the Físchlár digital video library and the early TRECVid retrieval experiments, to the more recent deployment of broadcast TV search technologies in the living room. I will discuss our experiences of providing effective retrieval from broadcast TV content, the challenges that are presented as broadcast TV search technologies are deployed in the home, and also how we see these search technologies progressing into the near future.
