Sketch-based Video Browser (or Video Hunter) - (An interactive video retrieval tool for known-item search tasks.)

Sketch-based Video Browser (or Video Hunter) is a new interactive video retrieval tool focusing on known-item search (KIS) tasks. In KIS tasks, users know about some video scene, know it is contained in a collection, but do not know where it is located. Therefore, users have to search/browse the collection with advanced techniques enabling query initialization, result visualization and browsing. Given such support, known-item search is not restricted just to ideal query formulation. The Video Hunter tool has participated in the Video Browser Showdown, winning the competition in 2014 and 2015. In both years 2016 and 2017, the Video Hunter tool achieved the third place.
