This paper describes a demonstration system which automatically indexes broadcast television content for subsequent non-linear browsing. User-specified television programmes are captured in MPEG-1 format and analysed using a number of video indexing tools such as shot boundary detection, keyframe extraction, shot clustering and news story segmentation. A number of different interfaces have been developed which allow a user to browse the visual index created by these analysis tools. These interfaces are designed to facilitate users locating video content of particular interest. Once such content is located, the MPEG-1 bitstream can be streamed to the user in real-time. This paper describes both the high-level functionality of the system and the low-level indexing tools employed, as well as giving an overview of the different browsing mechanisms employed
