Dear Colleagues


The Clipper project is developing a free and open source software
toolkit to support researchers in all disciplines who work with digital
audio-visual media and we would like to extend a warm invite you to
attend our upcoming free community consultation workshops in October
2015, engage in comment, feedback and discussion about our online
prototypes and arrange discussion meetings (for further information –
please see below and via the web links). After each workshop we shall be
releasing a prototype based on the feedback received.

The next Clipper community consultation workshop takes place at
Manchester School of Art, Wednesday 14th October
<> and
starts at 10:00

The final Clipper community consultation workshop takes place at British
Library, London, Monday 26th October
and starts at 10:00

Our first working prototype is now available to try online and can be
accessed at this page
<> together with
demonstration videos and support notes.

*Clipper Toolkit Description *(from our brochure

Clipper enables researchers to create and share virtual-clips from
online media without altering the original data files. Clipper enables
you to mark the start and end of interesting events while playing audio
or video data files through a standard web browser. You can add rich
text annotations to each clip, and combine clips into playlists
(cliplists). For the latest overview of the Clipper Toolkit and what it
does please visit this page

By the end of November, through this process of consultation and
co-design, we aim to have a working prototype that demonstrates the
toolkit working with different online audio-visual collections. Our aim
for phase 3 in 2016 is to produce an online demonstrator for possible
national services, institutional deployments and personal research tools.
