Project Name: OLIVE: Development of a multilingual indexing tool for broadcast material based on speech recognition

Abbreviation: OLIVE

Start date: May 1, 1998

End date: August 31, 2000

Project Description:


OLIVE is developing a system which automatically produces indexes from the sound track of a programme (television or radio). This allows archives to be searched by keywords and corresponding visual or soundtrack material to be retrieved. OLIVE broadens the applicability of Pop-Eye, which is using subtitles and video time codes to index broadcast material. The system will facilitate production of broadcast material which incorporates existing radio and video material, for example, news and documentaries. It will also be a valuable tool for programme researchers designing new programmes and other content providers, such as advertisers. Through the provision of bibliographic material, transcripts and video stills, the system will save time by allowing material to be pre-viewed before it is actually retrieved from an archive.
