Video-based hypermedia and hypertext have each evolved with unique conventions for representing information structure and aesthetic presentation. These conventions have been influenced by the technical constraints imposed by CD-ROMs and the WWW. A formal methodology is needed, along with alternative approaches, to integrate and exchange properties between the two forms of media. By adding temporal, spatial, and associative qualities to both text and video, new modes of representation are possible. We propose a generic framework to structure and dynamically present a new form of video and text-based media called Hypervideo. We have developed a Hypervideo Engine and produced an experimental hypermedia work, HyperCafe, as an illustration of the general properties and aesthetic techniques that can be utilized in such a medium. We will discuss our authoring approach, the design of minimalist interaction techniques, as well as future research issues related to hypervideo.
