This site contains information on the development of Annodex technology,
documents which are being developed into open standards for the
Internet, open source reference software and

how to get involved. You can find the research papers for sale here
The Annodex technology will create a Continuous Media Web (CMWeb):
a massively multi-user, distributed hypermedia environment that works in
both streaming and disk contexts.

The Annodex technology extends the World Wide Web's hyperlinking,
searching, and compositing infrastructure to time-continuous data,
enabling e.g. video surfing, searching for clips of
audio and video files using ordinary Web search engines,
or on-the-fly composition of a video on a Web server from
previously annodexed clips.
How to Annodex Theora
The base software implementing the Annodex technology is made
available under an open source license to encourage take-up.
Application software such as browsers and authoring tools, as
well as links to other people's CMWeb software are also available.

The process that needs to be followed to create Annodex content
is described here. You can also surf and search some example
Annodex content from CSIRO on this site, and link to other
people's CMWeb sites.
The Continuous Media Web is a technology aimed at providing
Web users novel ways of building communities and sharing
information. Here you find mailing lists to help you getting
started and to contribute to its development. Join our dream
of a new world of unified, distributed, Web-based audio-visual
information and entertainment.
