The TREC Video Retrieval Evaluation (TRECVID) 2009 was a TREC-style video analysis and retrieval evaluation, the goal of which was to promote progress in content-based exploitation of digital video via open, metrics-based evaluation. Over the last 9 years TRECVID has yielded a better understanding of how systems can effectively accomplish such processing and how one can reliably benchmark their performance. 63 teams from various research organizations — 28 from Europe, 24 from Asia, 10 from North America, and 1 from Africa — completed one or more of four tasks: high-level feature extraction, search (fully automatic, manually assisted, or interactive), copy detection, or surveillance event detection. This paper gives an overview of the tasks, data used, evaluation mechanisms and performance
