    Search for multimedia is hampered by both the lack of quality annotations and a quantity of annotations. In recent years there has been a growth in multimedia search services that emphasis interactivity between the user and the interface. Some of these systems present an as yet untapped resource for providing annotations for video. In this paper, we investigate the use of a new innovative grouping interface for video search to provide additional annotations for video collections. The annotations provided are an inherent part of the search interface, thus providing less overhead for the user in providing annotations. In addition we believe that the users are more likely to provide high quality annotations as the annotations are used to aid the users search. Specifically we investigate the annotations provided as part of two evaluations of our system; the results of these evaluations also demonstrate the utility and benefit of a grouping interface for video search [8]. The results of the analysis presented in this paper demonstrate the benefit of this implicit approach for providing additional high quality annotations for video collections.
