When it comes to digital video users suppose more than simple VCR functionality. This paper presents a system that provides both direct manipulation and conversational interaction for digital video. The direct manipulation technique is implemented with graphical and acoustical video hyperlinks. These hyperlinks techniques are discussed in detail with focus on their temporal nature that is driven by the duration of the accessibility of objects within a digital video. An avatar system is used to give the user an additional conversational access to information that is related to the video. This access is independent of the play back time of the video content. The system components video server, video presentation and video authoring are discussed and the user interaction capabilities are shown.
