This paper presents Composer, an authoring tool to help creating interactive TV programs for the Brazilian Terrestrial Digital TV System. In Composer, several abstractions are defined creating different document views (structural, temporal, layout and textual). One of these views, the temporal view, preserves as much as possible the timeline paradigm, so(More)
Long before the first transmission in color of a World Cup in 1970, people used to gather around the few existing radio and TV sets to watch together and talk about their favorite programs. Decades later, not only the technology has significantly changed but also people's consumption and commenting habits. Nowadays, one can easily watch an online video on(More)
This paper introduces a community-based video sharing environment to support asynchronous communication among heterogeneous participants within a restricted social community. Unlike other community sharing efforts, our work is predicated on the desire to strengthen existing strong ties among group members, in which existing relationships can be nurtured.(More)
This paper introduces a multimedia document model that can structure community comments about media. In particular, we describe a set of temporal transformations for multimedia documents that allow end-users to create and share personalized timed-text comments on third party videos. The benefit over current approaches lays in the usage of a rich captioning(More)
This paper introduces an evaluated approach to the automatic generation of video narratives from user generated content gathered in a shared repository. In the context of social events, end-users record video material with their personal cameras and upload the content to a common repository. Video narrative techniques, implemented using Narrative Structure(More)
The wide availability of relatively high-quality cameras makes it easy for many users to capture video fragments of social events such as concerts, sports events or community gatherings. The wide availability of simple sharing tools makes it nearly as easy to upload individual fragments to on-line video sites. Current work on video mashups focuses on the(More)
Using high-quality video cameras on mobile devices, it is relatively easy to capture a significant volume of video content for community events such as local concerts or sporting events. A more difficult problem is selecting and sequencing individual media fragments that meet the personal interests of a viewer of such content. In this paper, we consider an(More)
Creating compelling multimedia productions is a nontrivial task. This is as true for creating professional content as it is for nonprofessional editors. During the past 20 years, authoring networked content has been a part of the research agenda of the multimedia community. Unfortunately, authoring has been seen as an initial enterprise that occurs before(More)
The objective of this work is to define a document model extension that enables complex spatial and temporal interactions within multimedia documents. As an example we describe an authoring interface of a photo sharing system that can be used to capture stories in an open, declarative format. The document model extension defines visual transformations for(More)
