An image-rich interface is presented, which emphasizes visual exploration of sets of images representing shots returned from a query of filter against a digital video corpus. This interface, a storyboard of keyframes for multiple video segments, maintains temporal layout, accommodates contextual cues and filtering, supports additional filtering through visual features, and provides a means of drilling down to synchronized points in the associated video. These features allow for effective information retrieval from a video collection, as evidenced by the success achieved in interactive query for the TREC 2002 Video Retrieval Track (TREC-V). This paper introduces TREC-V, discusses the design of the multi-segment storyboard interface, illustrates its use with respect to the TREC-V topics, and presents results and conclusions based on the TREC-V evaluation.
