We describe an architecture for distributed collaborative visualization that integrates video conferencing, distributed data management and grid technologies as well as tangible interaction devices for visualization. High-speed, low-latency optical networks support high-quality collaborative interaction and remote visualization of large data.
Using internet for media-based real-time collaboration has become widespread activity. In this paper, we present a framework called CoUniverse, designed for building realtime user-empowered collaborative environments to work primarily on high-speed networks with true high-bandwidth applications such as uncompressed high-definition video. The system is(More)
We describe a high-quality collaborative environment that uses High-Definition (HD) video to achieve near realistic perception of a remote site. The capture part, consisting of a HD camera, Centaurus HD-SDI capture card, and UltraGrid software, produces a 1.5 Gbps UDP data stream of uncompressed HD video that is transferred over a 10GE network interface to(More)
Eleven models of total artificial hearts (TAHs) have been used for transient or permanent circulatory support in patients with failing hearts. From April 4, 1969 to July 1, 1991, 230 TAHs were used in 226 patients (four patients received a second TAH) at 39 centers worldwide. Five patients received a Symbion TAH as a permanent circulatory support device;(More)
—This article describes a distributed classroom experiment carried out by five universities in the US and Europe at the beginning of 2007. This experiment was motivated by the emergence of new digital media technology supporting uncompressed high-definition video capture, transport and display as well as the networking services required for its deployment(More)
Providing secure, extensible, pervasive and easy to implement collaborative environment for medical applications poses significant challenge for state-of-the-art computer systems and networks. In this paper, we describe such a collaborative environment developed for Ithanet project, based on Grid authentication mechanisms. Significant effort has been put(More)
