A tool for annotating, indexing and analyzing videotapes ad other time-based data. Small and compact. Runs on a Macintosh computer, including Powerbook. What is typed is time-stamped, using the same time-base as that of the video being recorded/played. These typed annotations can then be used in analysis, indexing, or annotating the tape.


As was noted in the description, Timelines runs on a Macintosh and was coded using LISP. The software speaks to all control-L devices.


The system works and is usable. It is built upon commercially available components.


There are few. It would have to be rewritten in more robust code, but it is ready for transfer.


The manually operated version is in late beta testing. Documentation is inadequate at the moment. Work is ongoing.
