  Description     : Annotate Digital Videos, Exchange on the NEt

 The Advene (Annotate Digital Videos, Exchange on the NEt) project is
 aimed towards communities exchanging discourses (analysis, studies) about
 audiovisual documents (e.g. movies) in digital format. This requires
 that audiovisual content and hypertext facilities be integrated, thanks
 to annotations providing explicit structures on  audiovisual streams,
 upon which hypervideo documents can be engineered.
 The cross-platform Advene application allows users to easily
 create comments and analyses of video comments, through the
 definition of time-aligned annotations and their mobilisation
 into automatically-generated or user-written comment views (HTML
 documents). Annotations can also be used to modify the rendition
 of the audiovisual document, thus providing virtual montage,
 captioning, navigation... capabilities. Users can exchange their
 comments/analyses in the form of Advene packages, independently from
 the video itself.

 The Advene framework is a cross-platform software provides models and
 tools allowing to design and reuse annotations schemas; annotate
 video streams according to these schemas; generate and create
 Stream-Time Based (mainly video-centered) or User-Time Based (mainly
 text-centered) visualisations of the annotations. Schemas (annotation-
 and relation-types), annotations and relations, queries and views can
 be clustered and shared in units called packages. Hypervideo documents
 are generated when needed, both from packages (for annotation and view
 description) and audiovisual streams.

Note: Debian packages are available from the website http://www.advene.org/
