Direct Wall Interaction in SAGE

This video shows the latest SAGE (Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment) user interface development for direct manipulation of windowing on a tiled display. Previous SAGE user interaction with the tiled display was mediated through a control panel on a separate computer. The current solution being demonstrated allows the user to interact directly with the display environment using a handheld interface device. Rapid access to minimizing, maximizing and closing windows, as well as several defaults for managing and sizing numerous windows across the display with a single command are significant improvements over previous instantiations. A catalogue of content or media browser provides an extremely functional method for users to quickly browse and select content for display using thumbnail review.
