The Display as a Service (DaaS) technology is the core software asset of the homonymous DaaS research team at ASR. The DaaS software allows to address arbitrarily many sources of pixels as well as displays simultaneously using standard IP networks and map them onto each other in real time. As soon as a mapping took place, an optimized realtime pixel flow between participating sources and displays takes place, replacing dedicated video cables with omnipresent networks. Advanced capabilities of DaaS include live display reconfiguration as well as playing out to composite display walls (even heterogeneous ones composed from entirely different devices!). For more information about DaaS and the underlying technology, please visit the web site of the new spin-off company Pxio.
ATLAS (which stands for “Advanced Three-dimensional Large-scale Asset Server”) is a system for storage and conversion of polygonal 3D models. It offers a REST interface to add and retrieve models, where HTTP content negotiation is used to determine the input and output format(s).
COMPASS (“Collaborative Modular Prototyping And Simulation Server”) is a framework for developing web applications with which elements of 3D scenes can be arranged and end enriched with metadata.
