Abstract

News broadcasters and on-line publishers daily generate a large amount of articles and videos describing events currently happening in the world. In this, work we present a system that automatically indexes videos from a library and links them to stories developing in the news. The user interface displays in an intuitive manner the links between  videos and stories and allows navigation through related content by using associated tags. This interface is a powerful industrial tool for publishers to index, retrieve and visualize their video content. It helps them identify which topics require more attention or retrieve related content that's already been published about the stories.
