Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0031741A1] The system creates an index of video stored on a videotape. It includes a video recorder which generates a video signal that corresponds to the video stored on the videotape, and which adds an index marker to the videotape in response to a command. A computing device receives the video signal from the video recorder, detects a predetermined feature based on the video signal, issues the command to the video recorder to add the index marker to the videotape at a location of the predetermined feature, and stores the index marker. The computing device also issues a second command to the video recorder to forward the videotape to a particular location, which command includes an index marker which specifies the location. The video recorder receives this second command and, in response, searches through the videotape for the index marker included in the second command, and forwards the videotape to the location of the index marker.
