It is a video method of transcribing signs.  They are able to analyze signs frame by frame and then use glossing, etc. to do their analysis.  That's the way I understand it.  I was just browsing the web and found the site.  I just thought that for linguists who want a detailed analysis, mixing this and SW would be cool.  SW would provide a simple way to search the database for certain movements and then a video example would not be far away.  I assume hearing linguists do something similar when analyzing the phonetic components of hearing languages??
