We invite you for a demo of VESTA, an audio/video annotation platform produced by CRIM (Centre de Recherche Informatique de Montréal / Computer Research Institute of Montreal), as the second installment of joint folkwaysAlive! and the Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology Wednesday noon series.

The VESTA platform, originally developed for the educational studies research community, promises to become invaluable for the (partially automatic) annotation of ethnographic audio and video as well.
