speech indexing, retrievel and advanced browsing. Those in attendance
will also have the opportunity to learn more about IBM CueVideo
and consider partnering opportunities with IBM.

CueVideo provides video and speech indexing, retrieval and advanced
browsing. It is a server-client architecture, integrated with multimedia
streaming and advanced video browsing. Its speech retrieval capability
is not only speech recognition (ViaVoice), but also combines phonetic
retrieval of out-of-vocabulary words, sound-like words, and words
missed by the speech recognition. The people and markets interested
in CueVideo include Web content creators, broadcast news, remote
education, media content consumers in various industries and others.
CueVideo provides easy access to large video databases, and makes
searching and browsing video almost as simple as that of text. It
is most suitable for video-enriched applications such as those arising
in distance learning, corporate training, just-in-time learning,
remote education, video archives, video conferencing and video proceedings
of conferences. CueVideo also addresses the challenges that arise
in the creation, indexing and use of large video databases.
With advances in hardware and network technology, the proliferation
of ever smaller and cheaper video capture devices and the emergence
of the web, more and more media rich applications are becoming economically
feasible. One of the key emerging areas is distance or distributed
learning. For applications in this area, the content usually consists
of media rich material, such as video, audio, text and foils. Video
content, when properly hyperlinked to text and foils, significantly
enhances learning and the communication experience. Video provides
the realism, interest and detail not available in other media and
it is critical in many areas, such as medical, maintenance, sales
A CueVideo Toolkit is available for evaluation and licensing via
Alphaworks (IBM's prototyping Web site) or directly from IBM Almaden
