Current advanced television concepts envision data broadcasting along with the video stream, which is used by interactive applications at the client end. In this case, these applications do not proactively personalize the experience and may not allow user requests for additional information. We propose content enhancement using automatic retrieval of additional information based on video content and user interests. Our paper describes Video Retriever Genie, a system that enhances content with additional information based on metadata that provides semantics for the content. The system is based on a digital TV (Philips TriMedia) platform. We enhance content through user queries that define information extraction tasks that retrieve information from the Web. We present several examples of content enhancement such as additional movie character/actor information, financial information and weather alerts. Our system builds a bridge between the traditional TV viewing and the domain of personal computing and Internet. The boundaries between these domains are dissolving and this system demonstrates one effective approach for content enhancement. In addition, we illustrate our discussion with examples from two existing standards - MPEG-7 and TV-Anytime.
