At last: video search that works


CSIRO has developed an interactive plugin for browsing through webs of video.

The free Annodex™ plugin for Mozilla Firefox gives users the ability to use text queries to search for video clips, watch a selection, then seamlessly hyperlink to further video, audio or web content. When used with a Web search engine, video search now works just like users expect.

Unlike other recently released video search tools, an Annodex™ search delivers actual video content. Tools such as Google’s beta video search work by searching a program’s closed captioning text. The search results simply provide an excerpt from the text and a single still image from the program. In contrast an Annodex™ search provides the user with a detailed summary of the video content, an interactive list of video clips, and hyperlinks to additional material.

Project leader Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, says that the applications of Annodex™ are many and varied.

"Users are discouraged by the complexity of search for clips within vast online multimedia collections. They are demanding a technology that lets them actively search for content," says Dr Pfeiffer.

"Annodex™ and the standards behind it allow them to do just that - it will revolutionise the way we search for time-continuous data. Annodex™ also allows video content to be explored using any digitally networked device - including mobile phones, handheld PDAs and digital TV."

Besides entertainment, Annodex™ has many other practical applications such as searching medical information, environmental measurements and network load statistics - on demand."

The groundbreaking technology behind Annodex™ is known as Continuous Media Markup Language (CMML). CMML does for time-continuous media what HTML does for text. It allows the user to search, access, navigate and query.

Further to the free Annodex™ browser, Dr Pfeiffer’s team have developed an easy-to-use graphical authoring tool to allow publishers of video content to add the required metadata and captioning to their work so the material can be successfully searched.

A demonstration of the Annodex™ technology and the free Firefox plugin can be found at .

Annodex™ is a collaborative project of the CSIRO ICT Centre and the Centre for Networking Technologies for the Information Economy (CeNTIE). CeNTIE is supported by the Australian Government through the Advanced Networks Program (ANP) of the Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
