Tutorial Details: Remote Visualization - Webinar

Date: Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 01:00 pm - 02:00 pm
Instructor(s): Mike Knox, MSI, Ravishankar Chityala, MSI

The technology behind data acquisition and especially image acquisition have grown enormously over the years. Data sets of size greater than 1GB are common. Such datasets present a unique problem during the visualization process. They need large memory, powerful CPUs and good graphic capabilities in the form of graphics cards. Such technologies are expensive for individual researchers to buy and maintain, so MSI has been working on creating such an infrastructure.

In this tutorial, we will introduce the remote visualization capabilities of MSI. We will discuss the details of the various visualization systems users can access. We will also discuss the software, VirtualGL, for connecting to these systems.

This tutorial utilizes UMConnect and takes place entirely online. Please register as usual. Registered users will receive meeting information by email within 24 hours of the workshop start date.
