Dublin City University participated in the interactive search task and Shot Boundary Detection task* of the TREC Video Track. In the interactive search task experiment thirty people used three different digital video browsers to find video segments matching the given topics. Each user was under a time constraint of six minutes for each topic assigned to them. The purpose of this experiment was to compare video browsers and so a method was developed for combining independent users’ results for a topic into one set of results. Collated results based on thirty users are available herein though individual users’ and browsers’ results are currently unavailable for comparison. Our purpose in participating in this TREC track was to create the ground truth within the TREC framework, which will allow us to do direct browser performance comparisons.
