A few years ago we started an overview of video annotation projects and
tools for the EUscreen network. We haven't been able to turn it into a
state of the art document as of yet, but I'm hoping it would be useful for
such an endeavour:

> * create annotations at specific timestamps, or across spans of time,
> and have those annotations associated with regions of the video image.
> * annotations could include, text, audio, video, image, URL, etc.
