The objective of this project is the development of a Video Information Retrieval system that will operate on video libraries composed of subtitled documents. Contrasting with previous projects, we restrict ourselves to movies and television series for which subtitles are available. Distinguishing aspects of this project include information retrieval based on the simultaneous analysis of three information streams: video signal, subtitles and audio signal. The system allows visualizing videos in meaningful ways and accepts queries from the user to find portions of video documents that match the queries.
