To test it out, I added it to to the ftrackreview web player, did some wiring, configuration and added some custom events. The results can be seen in the video below. Altough the initial results looks promising, there are lot of issues and quirks that would have to be handled for something like this to work its way into our product. In either case, it's something worth looking into in the future. I can see some cool uses in both review sessions and client portals.
The video shows two browser windows, representing two different persons. Person A starts a ftrackreview session and starts the collaboration tool. He receives a URL which he gives to person B. Person B clicks the link to join the session. Person A can then select and play any version, pause on a specific frame and draw annotations. Person B's browser will load the same version, pause at the same frames and show any annotations Person A makes. Audio- and text-based chat is also available.
