Paper Abstract

Tiled display systems have emerged as a means to visualize complex scientific data sets, while reducing the need to subsample potentially critical information. This paper presents a global-timestamp-based approach for the development and the control of real-time distributed tiled display systems. Two different techniques are presented that enable the development of multi-tile configurations in combination with distributed render clusters. A single-display-multiple-renderer approach is presented that fuses visuals generated by multiple render nodes into one composite image, which can be assigned to one specific display tile. This approach is subsequently extend to a multiple-display-multiple-rendered approach that facilitates the creation of scalable display systems consisting of multiple display tiles and render clusters. This paper investigates challenges that have to be addressed by these systems and describes a proof-of-concept system based on a high-level object-oriented real-time programming scheme called TMO.
