LAVA at CineGrid
On Dec 9, 2014, the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization and Applications (LAVA) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, and the University of Illinois at Chicago demonstrated SAGE2- the Scalable Amplified Group Environment software system at the 9th annual CineGrid conference at Qualcomm Institute, on the campus of University of California, San Diego.
SAGE2 is an “operating system” for ultra high resolution display environments, that enable teams of users to work with visualizations so that they can come to conclusions and make decisions with greater speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness, and confidence. SAGE2 was funded by a $5M grant from the National Science Foundation in 2013, with the University of Hawaiʻi as the lead institution.
CineGrid is an annual workshop for an interdisciplinary international community that is focused on the research, development, and demonstration of networked collaborative tools to enable the production, use, preservation, and exchange of very-high-quality digital media over photonic networks. Members of CineGrid consist of both researchers/educators from Academia as well as practitioners from the Film and Digital Media industries.
