Video-on-Demand Metadata Query Interfaces

May 1995

Two graphical user interfaces to a Video-on-Demand system are described. Each interface allows a user to compose and submit queries to a metadata database for execution, thus helping the user to find video data. The first interface is a full-function WYSIWYG interface implemented in Tcl/Tk. The second interface uses the World Wide Web to support a subset of queries allowed by the first interface. Both interfaces support complex queries to a variety of indexes that contain bibliographic, structural, content-based, keyword, and representational information. The design and implementation of the interfaces and our experience using them is described.
