AU Research Fires Up Video Surfing

Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organization is developing a technology which will make surfing audio and video content as easy as text (view a screenshot here). The tool, called Continuous Media Web (CMWeb), enables user to activate a link within a video or audio file, and be taken to a related clip in another file, and then return to the original or follow further links into other subject areas, in much the same way they currently do with Web pages.
