Paper Abstract

A powerful new set of video playback control functions is proposed which aids subscribers in finding specific programs or contents from among a vast store of video materials. For conducting title-based searches, repeat and clip capabilities are proposed as ways of previewing or browsing a program's contents. For retrieving information from within a program, skip and fast forward/rewind functions are effective when searching through video materials that are familiar, while midway playback is an effective approach when searching through material that had never been seen before. Most significantly, this set of video playback control permits visual searches without reducing the number of concurrent users that can be supported while preserving a video access response time of under 1 second. The proposed methods are implemented in an experimental system and evaluated.
