Introduction to the Access Grid

E-mail Print PDF

The Access Grid is an ensemble of resources including multimedia large-format displays, presentation and interactive environments, and interfaces to Grid middleware and to visualization environments. These resources are used to support group-to-group interactions across the Access Grid.
The Access Grid is an integrated environment that supports group-to-group communication using high-speed networks over the Internet. It provides high-quality audio and real-time video that allow groups at multiple sites to interact simultaneously to share data and scientific instruments.
Meeting participants (both local and distant) appear in windows projected onto a large screen. The current display resolution at VisLab is 3840 x 1024 pixels. Additionally, data windows from participants' laptop computers can be integrated into the meeting (eg. display images, movies, presentations, spreadsheets).
