A Unified, Modular and Multimodal Approach to Search and Hyperlinking Video

Preston, John, Hare, Jonathon, Samangooei, Sina, Davies, Jamie, Jain, Neha, Dupplaw, David and Lewis, Paul H. (2013) A Unified, Modular and Multimodal Approach to Search and Hyperlinking Video At MediaEval 2013 / Search and Hyperlinking of Television Content, Spain.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper describes a modular architecture for searching and hyperlinking clips of TV programmes. The architecture aimed to unify the combination of features from different modalities through a common representation based on a set of probability density functions over the timeline of a programme. The core component of the system consisted of analysis of sections of transcripts based on a textual query. Results show that search is made worse by the addition of other components, whereas in hyperlinking precision is increased by the addition of visual features.
