ScienceCinema uses innovative, state-of-the-art audio indexing and speech recognition technology to allow users to quickly find video files produced by the DOE National Laboratories, other DOE research facilities, and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). For videos that are compatible with the Microsoft Research Audio Video Indexing System (MAVIS) technology, users can search for specific words and phrases, and precise snippets of the video where the search term was spoken will appear along with a timeline. Users can then select a snippet or a segment along the timeline to begin playing the video at the exact point in the video where the words were spoken. ScienceCinema delivers the precision searching already common in text-based databases. Over 1,700 speech-indexed videos are currently available in ScienceCinema (plus records and links to over 400 additional videos), and the database will continue to grow as new R&D-related videos are produced.
