Applications of Hypervideo

Hypervideo has recently started to be included into hypermedia systems. However there is already a great interest to accelerate its entrance in the hypermedia world. Once it was thought that video would enter very late into the Internet world due to its bandwidth requirements. But now that it has been proved the feasibility of using video in Internet, more and more persons are looking to make use of it forcing, as it was discussed in previous sections, changes in the rhetoric of the whole hypermedia system.

Hypervideo has a large area of applicability. Almost any application area that already uses video may benefit from hypervideo. Nevertheless some of the areas that use video, already implemented some of hypervideo functionality in one or another ways.

There are even more areas currently using video that would benefit from the availability of hypervideo systems. Some of those areas are discussed briefly in the following section.
