Abstract

This paper discusses the evaluation of a video annotator that supports multimodal annotation and is applied to contemporary dance as a creation tool. The Creation-Tool was conceived and designed to assist the creative processes of choreographers and dance performers, functioning as a digital notebook for personal annotations. The prototype, developed for Tablet PCs, allows video annotation in real-time, using a live video stream, or postevent, using a pre-recorded video stream. The tool also allows different video annotation modalities, such as annotation marks, text, audio, ink strokes and hyperlinks. In addition, the system enables different modes of annotation and video visualization. The development followed an iterative design process involving two choreographers, and a usability study was carried out, involving international dance performers participating in a contemporary dance "residence - workshop".
