PaperVideo: Interacting with Videos On Multiple Paper-like Displays

© Telecooperation Lab

Sifting and sense-making of video collections are important tasksin many professions. In contrast to sense-making of paperdocuments, where physical structuring of many documents hasproven to be key to effective work, interaction with video is stillrestricted to the traditional “one video at a time” paradigm. We investigated how interaction with video can benefit frompaper-like displays that allow for working with multiple videos simultaneously in physical space. We present a corresponding approach and system called PaperVideo, including novel interaction concepts for both video and audio. These include spatial techniques for temporal navigation, arranging, grouping and linking of videos, as well as for managing video contents and simultaneous audio playback on multiple displays. An evaluation with users provides insights into how paper-based navigation with videos improves active video work.
