Abstract: Watching TV is a practice many people enjoy and feel comfortable with. While watching a TV programme, users can be offered the opportunity to, while making annotations, create their own edited versions of the programme. In this scenario, it is a challenge to allow the user to add comments in a ubiquitous, transparent way. In this paper, we exploit the concept of end-user live editing of interactive video programmes by detailing an environment where users are able to live edit a video using the iTV remote control. We contextualise our approach in the context of the Brazilian Interactive Digital TV platform.

Keywords: WaC; watch-and-comment paradigm; transparent interactive video; live video; video editing; multimedia document engineering; Brazil; interactive TV; interactive television.
