The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision is responsible for maintaining audiovisual archives, preserving hundreds of thousands of hours of media. This includes films, television, and videogames. To preserve these media, Drupsteen blurred the television images to create greater visual continuity and fusing them into 2,100 high-relief cast-glass panels.

TRECVid

Sound and Vision works closely with the TRECVid community to define and implement new technical and user requirements for computer vision and video search. These efforts are designed to improve the way users search for and access multimedia content. These efforts include defining enterprise architecture, user interface requirements, and time-based metadata. Additionally, Sound and Vision runs a research laboratory that functions as a clone of the operational iMMix system. This allows researchers to test scientific research findings and evaluate the impact on the end-user.

TRECVid uses broadcast television news videos, including cartoons, news programming, talking heads, and news, as a test dataset. The test datasets contain approximately 400 hours of video each, with approximately three hundred hours of content from popular programs and a hundred hours from rare programs. The goal is to create datasets that contain a similar mix of program sources and amounts.

The Netherlands Institute For Sound and Vision serves a number of different user groups. In addition to broadcast professionals, the archive's collections also include born-digital material that is ingested directly from the broadcast production environment. It is also used by students and scholars as a source of research, and by educators to support teaching and learning.

The role of archivists is evolving. In addition to managing a variety of metadata streams, they must also ensure quality. As a result, educating the audiovisual sector is imperative. Using collaborative research prototypes to assess how well audiovisual collections are accessible is essential in improving audiovisual content access. This benchmark activity provides a unique opportunity to test new technologies and improve audiovisual archives.

TRECVid corpus

The Netherlands Institute For Sound and Vision (NISV) has provided a corpus of 400 hours of television and movie videos for research purposes. These videos were chosen from the Teleblik collection to eliminate cartoons, talking heads, and news programming. The corpus includes 300 h of frequently broadcast programs and 100 h of rarer programs. The researchers have used this corpus to develop systems that will allow more efficient access to audiovisual collections.

The TRECVid corpus was created to test machine learning algorithms on video content. It contains a variety of types of video and is used to evaluate the accuracy of speech and video-based speech recognition. In addition to speech recognition and object detection, TRECVid also assesses high-level tasks. This includes shot boundary determination, story boundary detection, and camera motion detection.

TRECVid corpus of audiovisual materials is the largest audiovisual archive in the world. The institute holds over 750,000 hours of audiovisual material and re-uses much of this material in new broadcasts. The archive's digital holdings already amount to six petabytes and are expected to reach 15 petabytes by 2015.

The TRECVid corpus is divided into topics, each of which contains a short text description of what the user needs to see. Most of these topics also contain a few example videos and images. The original TRECVid corpus also included some audio-only examples, but these were dropped for a variety of reasons, primarily because they were rarely relevant to the search.

TRECVid project

The Netherlands Institute For Sound and Vision, or NISV, is a national archive that manages over 700,000 hours of audio-visual material. It also serves as a museum and provides access to students and the public. Its mission is to preserve audio-visual heritage and make it accessible to the public. TREC-Vid, as it is known informally, is a large-scale digitization project that makes it easier for people to find and use audiovisual content.

TRECVid is being developed by researchers at Sound and Vision and three universities. The researchers have created 180 hours of video in MPEG-1 format. The content is composed of repeated images of politicians, places, and characters. It also includes logos and sports reporting. The video is divided automatically into 60 000 shots.

TRECVID was born out of TREC, a research conference dedicated to benchmarking computer vision systems. In the early days of the project, search performance was dominated by textual elements associated with news videos and automatic speech recognition, while visual content was still in its infancy. In this environment, TRECVID helped foster the development of generic concept detectors. Moreover, a task called high-level feature extraction (HLFE), renamed semantic indexing, was created to test the ability of the systems to recognize objects and activities.

While TREC-Vid was focused on closing the semantic gap for video, PASCAL Visual Object Class evaluated semantic gap in still image datasets. Using this dataset, the researchers were able to produce several benchmark collections that were used to develop a new generation of content-based video analytics techniques.

Impact of TRECVid on Sound and Vision

The collaboration between the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the TRECVid project has resulted in the development of prototype systems that exploit data from both sources to develop better search systems. The demonstration systems will enable the NISV and other audiovisual archives to improve their search engines and provide more efficient access to their collections.

The TRECVid project is part of the Commit8 research program, a five-year research program organized around a number of subprojects. One subproject, SEALINCMedia, focuses on developing natural and intuitive access to multimedia content through the use of metadata created by users. The project will investigate the use of user-tagged visual data from media sharing sites and evaluate its results within future editions of TRECVid.

One advantage of TRECVid is that it engages a world-wide community of researchers. This diversity allows researchers to test a much wider variety of methods than would be possible with just one team. Moreover, the study found that there is considerable interchange between research teams in terms of intermediate data and other resources. In addition, techniques developed by one team are quickly incorporated into the work of another.

Although the data used for TRECVid testing was similar to broadcast TV news, they contained a number of differences. The sound and vision videos contained fewer gradual transitions between shots, compared with broadcast news videos. The duration of the shots was shorter in 2006 than in 2007.
