Recently, for reusing large quantities of accumulated news video, technology for news topic searching and tracking has become necessary. Moreover, since we need to understand a certain topic from various viewpoints, we focus on identical event detection in various news programs from different countries. Currently, text information is generally used to retrieve news video. However, cross-lingual retrieval is complicated by machine translation performance and different viewpoints and cultures. In

In an experiment, we verified the effectiveness of making use of the existence of near-duplicate video segments and the possibility of improving retrieval performance.
