Desktop Integration in Graphics Environments

Desktop Integration in Graphics Environments.
Eurographics Association, Aire-la-Ville, In: Virtual Environments 2009, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

In this paper, we present the usage of the Remote Desktop Protocol to integrate arbitrary, legacy applications in various environments. This approach accesses a desktop on a real computer or within a virtual machine. The result is not one image of the whole desktop, but a sequence of images of all desktop components (windows, dialogs, etc.). These components are rendered into textures and fed into a rendering framework (OpenSG). There the functional hierarchy is represented by a scene graph. In this way the desktop components can be rearranged freely and painted according to circumstances of the graphical environment supporting a wide range of display settings - from immersive environments via high-resolution tiled displays to mobile devices.
