In this paper, we propose event-based video indexing, which is a kind of indexing by its semantical contents. Because video data is composed of multimodal information streams such as visual, auditory, and textual [closed caption (CC)] streams, we introduce a strategy of intermodal collaboration, i.e., collaborative processing taking account of the semantical dependency between these streams. Its aim is to improve the reliability and efficiency in contents analysis of video. Focusing here on temporal correspondence between visual and CC streams, the proposed method attempts to seek for time spans in which events are likely to take place through extraction of keywords from the CC stream and then to index shots in the visual stream. The experimental results for broadcasted sports video of American football games indicate that intermodal collaboration is effective for video indexing by the events such as touchdown (TD) and field goal (FG)
