For much the past decade, our research group has focused on developing multimedia authoring tools. We developed a research multimedia format and were involved in developing a multimedia standard. Our lab developed a research prototype of a multimedia editor and then spun off a company that turned it into a commercial editor for this standard. With several research concepts now having reached full maturity in the form of this standard and product, our lab is back where it started: at the beginning of the research idea life cycles, with new visions and hopes for what's next.
