A tool for video which enables a videographer to attach a richly layered set of contextual annotations to the video stream. The annotations aid human and machine retrieval of video content.

The stratification system was implemented on a DECstation 5000 UNIX workstation in Motif. Partial support for development was provided by British Telecom, Pioneer Corporation and Asahi Broadcasting.
