We developed a novel interactive video recording and playback technique for biomedical multimedia training but also applicable to other areas of multimedia. The Interactive Reality System (IRiS) improves on video playback used in most multimedia applications by controlling not only time, as in conventional video playback, but also space. A prototype is being tested and evaluated for multimedia training in breast self-examination (BSE). We discuss the advantages of IRiS and compare it to other similar approaches, such as QuickTime and iPIX. We detail the design of IRiS, its development, refinement, final implementation, evaluation, some projected plans and its uses in other biomedical and multimedia training scenarios.
