Subject: [AG-TECH] Access Grid Townhall Reminder - November

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.
