Paper Abstract

We present methods and systems for authoring by linking---generating multimedia documents by creating richly typed links between component media assets. As an example we describe our Sticky Video functionality in the MEERCAT system for linking photo and video media. We do so within the framework of a hierarchy of possible link-based authoring systems from manual to programmatic link creation and document authoring. We discuss mechanisms for accurately situating links between rich media components and flexibly typing those links to allow both better human information browsing and searching and automatic authoring. We describe issues in realtime distributed authoring and the use of metadata channels. In particular we present the concept of authoring by meeting, the automatic creation of multimedia documents from business meetings.
