A Hybrid Transport Infrastructure

Monday, May 31st, 2010

This multi-layered communications infrastructure has been chiefly utilized for its real-time multi-channel media processing and transport layers. The architecture of the system is multi-pier, trading off on the benefits of UDP, TCP and RTP/RTCP protocols for a very powerful media transport framework. The transport layer abstracts RTP, UDP and TCP transport mechanisms to simplify application integration. The application layer allows multi-channel real-time media processing applications to be built by linking together modules into graph structures (The application layer is similar to D2K in this respect). This project was the result of various lines of development while at NCSA beginning with my remote augmented reality work with Motorola and continuing with my work on collaborative video avatars embedded in the virtual reality space of Virtual Director.

Not a Mascot – Mobile Museum Exhibit

Monday, May 31st, 2010

Touring with the Understanding Race and Human Variation exhibition.
Co-produced by myself, Brent McDonald and UIUC Professor of Anthropology, Brenda Farnell, Not a Mascot is a public service announcement which presents a diverse set of American Indian voices from the Chicago American Indian Movement (AIM). This video will be part of a huge exhibition developed by the American Anthropological Association (AAA). – “open to the public since January 2007, the 5,000 square-foot museum exhibit was developed by the Science Museum of Minnesota. The exhibit includes interactive experiences for visitors to learn the history of race, the role of science in that history and the subtle and obtrusive expressions of race and racism in institutions and daily lives. The exhibit is touring for at least six years and is expected to reach some three million visitors in cities across the US.”
