The VSD benchmark is a collection of ground-truth files based on the extraction of violent events in movies, together with high level audio and video concepts. It is intended to be used for assessing the quality of methods for the detection of violent scenes and/or the recognition of some high level, violent related, concepts in movies.

Automatic extraction of face tracks is a key component of systems that analyses people in audio-visual content such as TV programs and movies. The Hannah dataset, based on the full audio-visual person annotation of a feature movie, enable state-of-the art tracking metrics to be exploited to evaluate face tracks used by, e.g., automatic character naming systems.

The Interestingness Dataset is a collection of movie excerpts and key-frames and their corresponding ground-truth files based on the classification into interesting and non-interesting samples. It is intended to be used for assessing the quality of methods for predicting the interestingness of multimedia content.

The Annotated Creative Commons Emotional Database. LIRIS-ACCEDE consists of video excerpts with a large content diversity annotated along affective dimensions, in contrast to existing datasets with very few video resources and limited accessibility due to copyright constraints.
