Video Notebook

Current version: Alpha

Description: Created by Reporters’ Lab developer Charlie Szymanski, Video Notebook was originally conceived as a way to unlock unstructured video that is increasingly used as the only record of government activity. By tapping into related content like tweets, closed-captioning and live blogging platforms, reporters can use the tool to match audio and video to existing content. They can then layer in their own notes and transcriptions, using it all to navigate and search quickly through hours of material to find what they’re looking for.
