Title: Digital Video Test Collection
Published: September 15, 1999
Abstract: By the end of 1999, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) plans to release the first installment of a public-domain digital video test collection. This first installment contains a series of digitized videos and their transcripts which can be used by researchers in content-based information retrieval(IR) and related fields as a collection in which search, retrieval, and analysis can be performed. This paper provides an introduction to our work in this area, the background and status of the digital video test collection, and information on how to access the collection.
