Describing audio-visual documents amounts to consider documentary aspects (the structure) as well as conceptual aspects (the content). In this paper, we propose an architecture which describes formally the content of the videos and which constrains the structure of their descriptions. This work is based on languages and technologies underlying the Semantic Web and in particular ontologies. Therefore, we propose to combine emerging Web standards, namely MPEG-7/XML Schema for the structural part

Finally, our work offers reasoning support on both aspects when querying a database of videos. 1 ina (Institut National de l'Audiovisuel ) has been archiving TV documents for 50 years and radio documents for 65 years. It stores more than 840 000 hours of broadcast programs (including 76 000 hours digitalized) and 940 000 hours of radio programs.
