The authors propose an interactive video browsing tool for supporting content management and selection in post-production. The approach is based on a process model for multimedia content abstraction. A software framework based on this process model and desktop and Web-based client applications are presented. For evaluation, they apply two TRECVID style fact finding approaches (retrieval and question answering tasks) and a user survey to the evaluation of the video browsing tool. They analyze the correlation between the results of the different methods, whether different aspects can be evaluated independently with the survey, and if a learning effect can be measured with the different methods, and they also compare the full-featured desktop and the limited Web-based user interface.
