On behalf of the IBM Team, I am posting our response to the following

MPEG-1 is preferrable for us. We suggest that the TREC benchmark be
specified to operate on MPEG-1 only.

A common set of shot boundaries would allow for better comparison across
different retrieval systems.
We would be willing to volunteer our shot boundary results and make them
available for the retrieval track. However, we would like to clarify the
1) submission of volunteered shot boundary results for retrieval (date?)
2) availability of NIST common set of shot boundaries (date?)
3) submission of final boundaries for shot boundary detection track

We have downloaded the available content via FTP already.
