Abstrakt

In this work we present the ZAPP, a management framework for distributed visualization systems. The main purpose of ZAPP is to improve the user, administrator, and developer experience in dealing with distributed displays. Even a single user with no administrative knowledge can operate a ZAPP-managed display system. The goal is that practically anyone is capable of operating the display with less than two minutes of training. To achieve this we present a lightweight management framework that links and controls the render workstations, which drive the displays, but also connects to the user's very own mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets, to enable convenient control over the display. Consequently, the users never need to leave their familiar hardware and operating system environments and can use distributed displays without external help.
