Video retrieval, benchmark, video content


Content based image and video retrieval research focuses on the development of novel features and similarity metrics for improving the retrieval performance. There are only a few well-established data benchmarks on which video retrieval tools can be tested. In this paper we propose a novel benchmark for video retrieval that researchers can use in their studies for comparing features and algorithms. The benchmark comes with frame indexing for objects to assist the process of algorithm development, i.e. research can focus on higher level analysis of matching videos as opposed to spending long periods of research on low level image processing operations such as image segmentation and object definitions.
