Imagine going back and watching the moment you and your team came up with an innovative idea, or revisit the meeting to check the details of an important task that was assigned to you. Imagine watching again a question that was raised during a professional congress, or a lecture you missed. Imagine that while trying to learn a new topic, you could easily fetch related lectures and meetings as well as emails, documents and web links.

inEvent is a research project that aims to allow you to search recorded video like lectures or meetings as easy as searching emails and documents. With inEvent you can easily search and jump to:

A specific keyword mentioned in a lecture
The moment a specific participant started to talk
A slide in a presentation during the lecture or meeting

inEvent personalizes the experience with recommendation lists and targeted search results.

inEvent unlocks the potential of your stored video lectures and meetings with new innovative technologies so your organization can fully leverage this data.
