Novel content-based search engine finds broadcast television programs
MediaTeam researchers have developed a prototype search service that finds television programs from the Finnish broadcast stream. Kuukkeli-TV service allows users to search Finnish broadcast content based on closed captions data. The service evaluates query terms against metadata that is extracted from the DVB stream and returns a list of matching programs to the user.
Kuukkeli-TV web service is developed for research purposes. The aim is to gain knowledge of the impact and usage of novel technology for accessing rich multimedia data. Users of the service are encouraged to give feedback about the service in a short questionnaire and give votes on the quality of the hits. The service is only available in Finnish language.
