In this talk I will give a short introduction to the field of digital humanities (DH) and highlight the important role of visualization for DH. After a brief overview of existing distant reading visualizations, I argue for the need of scalable reading for text analysis in DH and present possible visualization approaches. Going beyond distant reading, I show that scalable visualizations in the digital humanities are not only important for text-based analyses, but are also for image and video analysis. Accordingly, I present a multimodal approach for the scalable viewing of movies that makes use of image data (keyframes), structural data (shots and scenes) and movie dialogs (scripts and subtitles).
