Abstract

This paper presents VERGE interactive video retrieval engine, which is capable of searching and browsing video content. The system integrates several content-based analysis and retrieval modules such as video shot segmentation and scene detection, concept detection, clustering and visual similarity search into a user friendly interface that supports the user in browsing through the collection, in order to retrieve the desired clip.
