The November Townhall is scheduled for Tuesday, November 1, at 10:00AM CST
(16:00 UTC). It will be held in the Argonne National Laboratory venue on the
institutional venue server (Go to https://ivs.mcs.anl.gov:9000/Venues/default, then
Government Institutions Lobby, then Argonne National Lab).
Invited Speaker: Robert Putnam, Boston University
Positional Audio and Window Highlighting for the Access Grid
Boston University has developed a system to help users determine which
Access Grid participant is speaking at a given time. In the current test
system, when the amplitude of a site's audio rises above a minimum
threshold, the video windows from that site are highlighted by a color
outline, and the audio is positioned in the stereo field at the same
relative location as the last-moved video window.
Robert will discuss the [sometimes tortuous] development of the system, its
current implementation, and the prospects for inclusion in the AGtk.
There will be a second session held for those in the Asia-Pacific region, at
6:00PM CST (Wednesday, 00:00 UTC). Of course, anyone is welcome to attend this
session, if it's more agreeable with their schedules.
ANL will be running bridges in the Argonne venue for this meeting.
