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.
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)
Scientific computation faces multiple scalability challenges in trying to take advantage of the latest generation compute, network and graphics hardware. We present a comprehensive approach to solving four important scalability challenges: programming productivity, scalability to large numbers of processors, I/O bandwidth, and interactive visualization of… (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)
In past centuries, education has been one of the most powerful tools to help propel economic development and improve social well-being. Modern educational systems have benefited from technological advancement, especially in information and networking technologies. Although, distance education has existed for more than 100 years it still continues to evolve,… (More)
