The progress in the areas of research like emotion recognition, identification, syn- thesis, etc., relies heavily on the develop- ment and structure of the database. This paper addresses some of the key issues in development of the emotion databases. A new audio-visual emotion (AVE) database is developed. The database consists of au- dio, video and audio-visual clips sourced from TV broadcast like movies and soap- operas in English language. The data clips are manually segregated in an emotion and speaker specific way. This database is developed to address the emotion recog- nition in actual human interaction. The database is structured in such a way that it might be useful in a variety of applications like emotion analysis based on speaker or gender, emotion identification in multiple emotive dialogue scenarios etc.s
