Introductory system demonstration for Plan B 3rd edition.
Demonstrations for particular system features follow. Read the description before
watching the video. An overview demo for old the system (using a previous version) is linked below.
- Planb environment demo.
(2Mb and very bad quality).
- Plan B resource volumes demo.
- Omero user interfaces demo.
- Two Octopus terminals at the office, one running a
main screen and another running an
auxiliary screen. Editing using both at
the same time is feasible, and some of the UIs shown in the top-level row are
replicated among the screens without the application knowing.
This image shows a screenshot
of a Octopus terminal
while it was running at home (with the PC at the office).
- The corridor has some screens
(enrique's and paurea's) displaying who is where and arrows pointing
to the right direction.
- In the lab we have a
with context information, incluiding posters changing depending on
the users present and a voice and sound volume.
- Our server
is a 5TB AoE server with Plan 9.
- In the lab we run Plan B
terminals and Octopus terminals (the one shown was using acme).
- A screenshot of a Plan B terminal.
- Nemo's office is equiped with three screens: a 19" TFT as Primary Screen, a projector as the Main Screen and a 15" touchscreen as Other Screen. Nemo also uses his laptop and a tablet PC as terminals.
- Katia usually works with her laptop PC attached to a 17" TFT. Her office is also equiped with another 17" TFTs and a workstation.
- Enrique's office is provided with two workstation and two 17" TFTs as Primary and Main Screens.
He also works with his laptop computer.
- The Lab is equiped with a Mimio electronic whiteboard and multiple Mini-TX that are used as terminals. Outside the Lab, there is a Mini-TX that permits guest users access to context information (/who).
- We use Hexamite active RFIDs in order to get location information. LSUB users carry a transmiter (1, 2), and every LSUB member's office is equiped with a receiver(1, 2).
- We also use X10 sensors in order to adquire location information.
