In this paper, we describe SHAMUS, our system for an easy search and navigation in multimedia archives. The system consists of three components. The Search component provides a text-based search in a multimedia collection, the Anchoring component determines the most important segments of videos, and segments topically related to the anchoring ones are retrieved by the Hyperlinking component. In the paper, we describe each component of the system as well as the online demo interface which currently works with a collection of TED talks.
