Content State POC

This page contains a number of proof of concepts that show the different interaction patterns the new IIIF Content State API supports. The Content State standard is indented to allow a user to transfer what they are looking at from one viewer to another viewer. This might be due to preferring say Mirador over the UV or it could be transferring from an institution's Mirador to a version which has annotation functionality available.

The demos below are short on context but the video below shows how they work.
