In this paper we present and discuss the system we developed for the search task of the TRECVID 2002, and its evaluation in an interactive search task. To do this we will look at the strategy we used in designing the system, and we discuss and evaluate the experiments used to determine the value and effectiveness of one system incorporating both feature evidence and transcript retrieval compared to a transcript-only retrieval system. Both systems tested are built on the foundation of the Físchlár System developed and running for a number of years at the CDVP. The system is fully MPEG-7 compliant and uses XML for exchange of information within the overall architecture.
