Executive Summary

Locating content in existing video archives is both a time and bandwidth consuming process since users might have to download and manually watch large portions of superfluous videos. In this paper, the authors present two novel prototypes using an Internet based video composition and streaming system with a keyword-based search interface that collects, converts, analyses, indexes, and ranks video content. At user requests, the system can automatically sequence out portions of single videos or aggregate content from multiple videos to produce a single, personalized video stream on-the-fly.
