Annotation of video documents. Advene supports any video format,
and can also read from from DVDs or streams.
Easy and custom re/structuration of annotations
Multiple interfaces are available to create annotations:
definition of video bookmarks, synchronized note-taking, as well
as import from files (like srt) and some automatic extraction
(shot detection, audio segmentation...).
Display of annotations' content (or anything derived) as text or SVG
caption on the video
Multiple built-in views of annotations : timeline, finder,
Embedded webserver with dynamic generation of XHTML documents
using data from annotations
A static capture of generated documents can be obtained, with the
insertion of an embedded video player, in order to publish the
documents on a standard web server (see examples).
Ability to dynamically control the video player based on the
annotations, by defining dynamic views (for instance Display
text as captions and propose to navigate between shots)
Annotations and views are stored in packages that can be saved,
shared, stored on a server, etc.
Data can be imported from many formats, including: text, SRT
subtitles, ELAN, PRAAT, CMML, IRI, Anvil, MPEG7 (FreeTextAnnotations
only), Xi, AnnotationGraph, shotdetect, lsdvd
Data can be exported to multiple formats, including: SMIL,
SVG, HTML+CSS, SRT subtitles, spreadsheet, CMML. And, thanks to
the template-based system, export to any XML-based format is easy
